Orji Uzor Kalu to spend Christmas in prison as court rejects his bail application
Convicted Former Abia state governor, Orji Uzor Kalu, will be celebrating the yuletide in prison as his bail application was dismissed for lack in merit by a Federal high court sitting in Lagos today Monday December 23rd.
Recall that last week, Kalu filed an application for bail from Ikoyi prison where he is serving a 12 year jail term following his conviction for N7.2billion fraud on December 5th.
The former governor who was the chief whip of the Senate before his conviction, asked the court to grant him bail on health grounds. He argued that the prison lacked the medical facility to cater to his health challenges.
