KALU FILES APPLICATION FOR BAIL
Written by thereachfm on December 18, 2019
The former governor of Abia state, Orji Kalu has filed an application for bail pending his appeal against his jail sentence.
Kalu through his counsel is making the application based on health grounds, which he says the medical facilities in the prison cannot handle.
He also informed the court of his role as chief whip of the senate, which he says the interests of his constituents would be in jeopardy if he was kept behind bars.
It could be recalled that the Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos had on December 5, 2019, jailed Kalu for 12 years after finding him guilty of N7.56 billion fraud.
