According to allnigeriasoccer.com in Jos, Christopher thanked the media as well as the Nigeria Police for doing a beautiful job. Justice Christopher shot into international reckoning after he captained the Nigeria National Under-20 team, the Flying Eagles to the 2001 Africa Youth Championship in Ethiopia and thereafter was promoted to Nigeria’s senior national team the Super Eagles.
He was part of the Late Coach Shaibu Amodu tutored Super Eagles squad to the 2002 Africa Cup of Nations finals in Mali where he won a bronze medal with Nigeria and was also part of the Adegboye Onigbinde tutored Super Eagles squad to the far east, in Japan and South Korea same year.
