See Me Now Eating In Prison, Orji Kalu Tells Visitor

Orji Uzor Kalu

It has been reported that Chief Orji Uzor Kalu, senator representing Abia North, who was penultimate week convicted by the Lagos Division of the Federal High Court and sentenced to 12 years imprisonment for N7.65 billion fraud while he held sway as Abia State governor only recently came to terms with the reality of his new condition.

Although Kalu, who happens to be the Chief Whip in the upper chamber of the National Assembly has become a prison inmate since his conviction, Sentry gathered that the reality of his new condition did not dawn on him until some of his associates began to visit him in the prison.

It would be recalled that the former governor reportedly asked the prison officials who led him out of the court after the judge pronounced his conviction: “Where are we going now?”

A few days after he landed in prison, one of his business associates was said to have paid him a sympathy visit but was shocked at the pitiable picture cut by the former governor, who was said to be wearing a pair of bathroom slippers.

“See me now eating in the prison,” a pensive Kalu reportedly told his visitor, who struggled to find the words that could console him.

An erstwhile colleague of his as governor, who spent some time in incarceration, also visited him. The flamboyant ex-governor advised him to stay strong and regard his travails as another phase of life.

It was gathered that the former Abia State governor has been moved from Lagos to the Kuje Prison in Abuja for reasons no one could fathom.
