PHOTOS: Orji Kalu out of prison

Former Abia State governor and Senator representing Abia North, Orji Kalu, was on Wednesday freed from prison following an order for his release by a federal high court in Lagos on Tuesday.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had arraigned Kalu and Ude Jones Udeogu, a former director of finance and account of Abia state on 36 counts of money laundering to the tune of N7.1 billion and they were jailed in December.

On May 8, the supreme court nullified the trial of Kalu’s co-convict on the ground that Mohammed Idris, the trial judge who had been elevated to the court of appeal at the time of the case, ought not to have presided over the matter.
