The Supreme Court sitting in Abuja on Friday unanimously overturned the conviction of Senator Orji Uzor Kalu in the “N7. 65 billion” fraud.

Recall that Senator Kalu was convicted and sentenced to 12 years for allegedly defrauding the government of Abia State where he was a governor for 8 years using his company, Slok Nigeria Limited.

However, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu in his suit challenged the jurisdiction of the Lagos Division of the Federal High Court chaired by Justice Mohammed Idris who delivered the sentence. In Kalu’s Counsels argument, the Court of Appeal Judge who delivered the judgement at the Federal High Court convicting him lacked the power to do so.

Despite the objections raised by Senator kalu’s counsels , the appeal court judge proceeded with the case at the high Court and sentenced Senator Kalu.

The supreme court in its judgment declared that the judgement of the court of appeal delivered is hereby set aside . The court ruled that justice Idris having already being elevated to the appeal court lacked the power to sentence Kalu.

  1. At 80 I have lived in the US for almost have of those years. As a scholar I’ve read the history of the world 🌍🌎🌏; especially that of Africa, West Africa, Europe, Israel, and in particular that of Nigeria 🇳🇬. It has never ceased to amaze me to think about the evils of RACISM and SEGREGATIONS, especially in reference to ethnicity and religion. The reasons why certain Groups and Individuals are made culprits and forced into torture camps and often mercilessly Killed is still beyond human comprehension to me.
    As a Minister of God’s Word, I don’t condone evil, but yet I need to be enlightened in the principle and practice of love 💔, why certain individuals are targeted among millions of trust-breakers to be hated and punished, most of the time by the very bad eggs of any society!

  4. This ethnic politics in Nigeria will not help the country in any capacity. I want people to check the history of civilian rule and military
    in Nigeria since after independence it has been corruption after corruption. No changes,the ethnic divide has been exploited to the
    bone of the masses.
    I am not a fan of any politician all of them are guilty as charged. They know themselves and their families. I live in Philippines,a third
    country. Their governance is not perfect,but government is doing their best to meet up with population demand. There is rule of law.
    No immunity from persecution for members of Philippine armed forces. No exemption of the law because your ex head of state or
    ex police general.

    Nigeria case,is who knows who survives in the country.
