An established actor, Luter made his debut in the television film “Mama Gee Goes Mad” which was directed by Ugezu J.

In-between his acting career, Luter has taken part a reality TV show called ‘HEROES REALITY TV SHOW“, where he emerged as the first runner up and ended up with the Title “AMBASSADOR OF CULTURE AND TOURISM, BENUE STATE”.
Mr Luter Ikyobo is the true definition of a Benue son. He is hardworking, talented, innovative, and has an unquenchable thirst for success. These are the qualities that have endeared him to the OCI Foundation.
