Orji Kalu emerges leader of Abia APC caucus after release from prison

Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Kalu, has been elected the chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Abia State caucus.

The party caucus was dissolved before Mr Kalu was elected on Tuesday in Abuja.

Among those who were part of the process are state chairman of the party, Donatus Nwankpa; Minister of State for Mines and Steel, Uche Ogah; Deputy Majority Whip, House of Representatives, Nkiru Onyejiocha.

Others were the spokesman of the House of Representatives, Benjamin Kalu; former senator representing Abia Central, Senator Nkechi Nwogu; former Senator Chris Adighije, former House of Representatives member, Nnanna Kalu and Acho Obioma.

The new caucus also elected two co-deputy chairpersons for Abia South and Abia North – Sam Nkire and Nkiru Onyejiocha respectively.

This comes barely a month after Kalu’s release from prison early in June.

A Federal High Court in Lagos had granted a motion seeking his release from the Kuje Prison custody.

Justice Mohammed Liman before whom the applicant’s motion was pending, granted the prayer of the applicant and ordered the release of Kalu.

Kalu was initially sentenced to 12 years for an N7.2 billion fraud.

The verdict was handed down by Justice Mohammed Idris on December 5, 2019, while his co-defendant, Jones Udeogo bagged a 10-year jail term.
