Orji Kalu Heads To Court To Avert 12-Year Jail Term Over Alleged N7.65bn Fraud



Orji Uzor Kalu

Former governor of Abia state and chief whip of the Nigerian Senate, Orji Uzor Kalu, is set to return to court, this time to file a stay of execution on the 12-year jail sentence slammed on him on Thursday, December 5.

His lawyers are said to be carrying this out on his behalf after he and a former director of finance in his administration, Ude Udeogo, were handed jail sentences by a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos.

Daily Sun quoted one of Uzor-Kalu’s lawyers, Chief Charles Ewelunta, as saying the senator’s legal team now has the Certified True Copy (CTC) of the judgement.

He said the CTC was being studied to help the team in filing an appeal that would be preceded by an application for stay of execution and bail.
