Court Orders Immediate Release Of Orji Kalu From Prison:
The Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has ordered the release of Senator Orji Uzor Kalu from the Kuje Correctional Centre in Abuja.
Justice Mohammed Liman ordered Senator Kalu’s release on Tuesday morning after listening to an application filed by the former governor.
Senator Kalu as well as a two-term former governor of Abia State, had asked the court to set aside his conviction on December 5, 2019, by Justice Mohammed Idris.
However, the former governor explained that this is necessary since the Supreme Court, in its judgment delivered on May 8, 2020, held that Justice Idris gave the judgment without jurisdiction.
