Firstly do you think Orji Uzor Kalu would serve his jail term 😒 well in Nigeria anything can happen.
Orji Uzor Kalu, the former Abia State Governor was prosecuted on a 27 counts by the EFCC and has been jailed according to them.
Kalu, presently a Senator representing Abia North at the National Assembly, was jailed by a Federal High Court, sitting in Lagos and presided over by Justice Mohammad Idris. He was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment for N7.65bn fraud.
Also convicted and sentenced are two other accomplices, his firm, Slok Nigeria Limited and Udeh Udeogu, who was Director of Finance and Accounts at the Abia State Government House during his tenure as governor.
The judge also ordered that Slok Nigeria Limited be wound up and its assets forfeited to the Federal Government.
But see him smiling though while going to jail.
Nigerians are also reacting, read below;
Audio imprisonment. The man is a member of the APC. NOTHING WILL HAPPEN.
Show us a picture of him in his cell or doing manual labor, until then it’s just news as usual.
Ideally, his seat should be declared vacant & another person elected in as senator. But then, this is Nigeria, things are not always ideal here. After all, Senator Joshua Dariye is serving a 10 year prison sentence, but he still gets his salaries & allowances from the Senate.
Nigerians are soo confused, if EFCC doesn’t jail corrupt politicians, you complain. If EFCC fails corrupt politicians, you still complain
The asset should go to the abia state government, it’s state government money that he looted.
