Senate Chief Whip Orji Kalu still in Kuje prison – Prison Authorities says no warrant of release.

Senate Chief Whip and former Abia State Governor, Senator Orji Kalu is still cooling his feet at the Kuje Prisons and this is official.


Prison authorities at Kuje said the Supreme court did not send any warrant of release of the serving Senator to the Prison Authorities.

A Federal High Court had sentenced the Senate Chief Whip to 12 years imprisonment after he was found guilty of money laundry and abuse of office.

Reports say the judgment only covers the Appellant, Mr. Ude Jones Udeogu, who challenged the propriety of a Court of Appeal Judge, Justice Mohammed Idris to try him.

The Comptroller-General of Nigeria Correctional Service Mr. Jaafar Ahmed, has also refused to release Kalu because there was no any order from the Supreme Court.

It was learnt Kalu may have to approach the Court of Appeal, where he has a pending matter, to ask for his release following the dismissal of the judgment of the Federal High Court, Lagos by the Supreme Court.

According to a copy of the judgment, the Supreme Court clearly stated that the judgment relates only to the Appellant.
