In what could be best described as ‘triumphant entry’, Senate Chief Whip and former Governor of Abia state, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu on Monday received an unprecedented tumultuous welcome in Abia state
Senator Kalu who is visiting the South East for the first time since he was released from Kuje custodial centre on June 2nd, arrived Sam Mbakwe Airport Owerri in a private jet at exactly 1:32pm
Accompanied by his retinue of aides, friends and associates, Kalu was warmly welcomed at the airport by a number of supporters numbering about 3,000.
The Chief Whip of the Senate in a dramatic move to avoid the crowd headed straight to his country home where he was given an unprecedented welcome.
Each community his convoy passed greeted Kalu with 21 gun salute . See photos
