Senate President, on Friday, led a Senate delegation in a solidarity visit to Senator Orji Uzor Kalu who has just been released from prison.
A Federal High Court in Lagos had on Tuesday granted a motion seeking his release from the Kuje Prison custody.
Justice Mohammed Liman before whom the applicant’s motion was pending, granted the prayer of the applicant and ordered the release of Kalu.
Kalu was sentenced to 12 years for a N7.2 billion fraud. The verdict was handed down by Justice Mohammed Idris on December 5, 2019, while his co-defendant, Jones Udeogo bagged a 10-year jail term.
