Alleged N3.2bn Fraud Trial Of Former Governor Orji Uzor Kalu Stalled (Read Why)

Today,the absence of the prosecution on Tuesday stalled the trial of a former Governor of Abia, Orji Uzor Kalu, who is charged with N3.2 billion fraud at a Federal High Court in Lagos.

Kalu is being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) alongside his former Commissioner for Finance, Ude Udeogo, on 34 counts bordering on fraud.

Also charged with the accused is Kalu’s company — Slok Nigeria Ltd. The accused had pleaded not guilty to the charges.

On Tuesday, the trial of the accused could not proceed as scheduled following the absence of counsel to the EFCC, Mr Rotimi Jacobs (SAN).

Jacobs had written a letter to the court informing it of his absence and the court consequently, granted a short adjournment to Oct. 6, 7, and 8 for continuation of trial.
