Abuja (Precise Post) – Chief Whip of the 9th senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu was on Wednesday released from Kuje prison where he has been detained for almost six months.

It was gathered that the former governor of Abia state returned to his Abuja residence Wednesday evening.

Recall that Federal High Court sitting in Lagos on Tuesday granted a motion seeking his release from the Kuje Prison custody.

Justice Mohammed Liman before whom the applicant’s motion was pending, granted the prayer of the applicant and ordered the release of Kalu.

Precise Post recalls that Kalu was sentenced to 12 years for a N7.2 billion fraud allegedly committed while he was governor of Abia state.

The verdict was handed down by Justice Mohammed Idris on December 5, 2019, while his co-defendant, Jones Udeogo bagged a 10-year jail term.
