In the said suit, Kalu (SAN) and Uche (SAN) asked the court for an order of the court prohibiting the EFCC from retrying the former Abia State governor on the same money laundering charges.
He argued that having been tried, convicted and sentenced on the same charges in a suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CR/56/2007 under Justice M. B. Idris, it would amount to double jeopardy if the EFCC tried him again.
