BREAKING NEWS: Orji Uzor Kalu Sentenced To 12-years Jail Term Over N7.3bn Fraud |The Republican News

By Joseph Onyekwere

The federal high court in Lagos has sentenced the former governor of Abia Stae Senator Orji Uzor Kalu to 12 years imprisonment after being found guilty on all the 39-count charges brought against him.

He was convicted of N7.65billion fraud perpetuated when he was Abia State governor between 1999 and 2007.

Kalu was convicted alongside his firm, Slok Nigeria Limited and his former Abia State director of finance, Ude Udeogu.

The court also ordered forfeiture of all assets of his company to the federal government.

Justice Mohammed Idris, who delivered the sentence, had earlier declared him guilty of the charge in the case that had been on for 12 years.

In an amended 39-counts-charge, they were accused by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of conspiring and diverting over N7 billion from the coffers of the state.

In one of the counts, the EFCC alleged that Kalu “did procure Slok Nigeria Limited – a company solely owned by you and members of your family – to retain in its account, domiciled with the then Inland Bank Plc, Apapa branch, Lagos, an aggregate sum of N7,197,871,208.7 on your behalf.”

The prosecution claimed that the N7.1 billion “formed part of the funds illegally derived from the treasury of the Abia State Government and which was converted into several bank drafts before they were paid into the said company’s account.”

The prosecuting counsel, Rotimi Jacobs, said the ex-governor violated Section 17(c) of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act, 2004, and was liable to be punished under Section 16 of the same Act.

“After eating, we slept till the next morning around 5:30am. I brought out a knife. She was unaware there was a knife. So, I told her not to shout that if she does I will use the knife on her.

“Out of fear she kept quite. During that time the television volume was loud. Then I used the wrapper to tie her hands her legs from the back and strangled her with pillow case.”

BREAKING: Gov. Bello Wins APC Gubernatorial Primary By Wide Margin |The Republican News

Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello

Emmanuel Adeyemi, Lokoja

Governor Yahaya Bello has won the APC governorship primary which took place at the Confluence stadium, Lokoja, on Thursday, August 29.

Bello won a total of 3,224 of the 3,500 cast to defeat his closest rival Babatunde Irukera, who garnered a distant 109 votes.

The results are as follows:

(1) Sani Lulu: 7
(2) Yahaya Audu: 10
(3) Bashir Gegu: 3
(4) Iyoma Hadiza: 0
(5) Yakuba Muhammed: 0
(6) Engr. Dalami Muhammed: 0
(7) Hassan Baiwa: 44
(8) Tunde Irukera: 109
(9) Blessing Ekele: 0

Announcing the result, the governor of Jigawa State, Baderu Abubakar, who led other electoral committee members, including Nasarawa State Governor Abdullahi Sule, urged the losing candidates to accept the results in good faith and work for the overall success of the party at the general election

Governor Bello, in his victory speech, thanked God for the victory and promised to do more if elected at the general election.

A candidate, Hassan Abdullahi Baiwa, had prior to the commencement of voting staged a walkout from the venue of the primary, alleging that the whole process had been compromised.

Another candidate, Babatunde Irukera, expressed his displeasure over the exercise, complaining that it fell short of acceptable norms.

Baiwa, who represents Dekina /Bassa Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, told reporters that he had to walk out of the venue due to what he observed to be open and widespread cheating by delegates at the venue.

Baiwa said that he was taken aback when nearly all delegates claimed to be illiterate, leading to officials issuing them customised ballot papers with Governor Bello’s name pre-selected.

He said that all efforts to complain to officials fell on deaf ears, while security officials present chased him away.

On his next line of action, Baiwa said he had started consultations with his supporters and would communicate his decisions in due course. (The Sun)
