EFCC re-arraigns Orji Uzor Kalu over N3.2bn fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has once again arraigned a former governor of Abia, Orji Uzor Kalu together with two other people on a 34-count amended charge of fraud.
The former governor, his company Slok Nigeria Limited and his former commissioner for finance, Jones Udeogo, were re-arraigned before the Federal High Court, Abuja on Tuesday, September 27, with Justice Anwuri Chikere presiding.
According to Punch, Uzor Kalu and other defendants pleaded that the court wait for the pending appeal by Slok before the Supreme Court, however their plea failed.
Justice Chikere refused the defendants’ objection to their arraignment and ordered that the amended charge be read to them. They were accused of diverting about N3.2 billion from the Abia government’s treasury during Kalu’s tenure as governor.
