He was a distinguished Professor of Educational Psychology and former dean of Faculty of Education, Enugu State University of Science & Technology, ESUT.

Onyehalu retired in 2018 after his meritorious service and until his death in May 16th, 2022, he was on a contract teaching appointment in the Psychology unit of the Department of Educational Foundation, ESUT.

His socio - cultural participation earned him a titled chief in his community as "Nnanyelugo 1 of Achi".

However, testimonies about him revealed that he was a philanthropist par excellence as he had already sponsored over six students in tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
