Court Revokes Orji Kalu’s Bail
A Federal High Court in Lagos has revoked the bail granted to a former Governor of Abia State, Mr Orji Kalu for flouting court orders.
The Presiding Judge, Justice Muhammed Idris revoked the former governor’s bail for the failure to appear in court for his trial.
The judge said it is clear that Kalu disobeyed the court order and he maintained that no one, whether high or low, rich or poor can disobey a valid order of the court and expect such court to show mercy.
He also ordered that when Kalu returns to the country, he must report to the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) with all his travel documents.
The judge also ruled that the EFCC should effect his arrest should Kalu fail to submit himself to the anti-graft agency.
Kalu’s lawyer had sent a mail to the court informing the judge that the accused has been placed on bed rest for between 10 to 12 months.
On the contrary, the judge said no medical report was attached to the mail.
The case has however been adjourned to January 23, 2019, for trial.
