2023, here we come, says convicted Orji Uzor Kalu

Former Governor of Abia State, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu, who was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment, over N7.65billion fraud, by a Federal High court sitting in Lagos, while being led out of the court by the Correctional Service officers on Thursday said ‘2023, here we come’.

Kalu, who is the Senate’s Chief Whip smiled at reporters and said, ‘2023, here we come’ as he was being led out of the courtroom by Correctional Services officials after his sentencing.

He was also seen asking prison warders, “where are you taking us to?”. Kalu pleaded with the prison warders not to handcuff him in public. The former governor, who appeared shaken, said, “Where are you taking us to now? Please don’t handcuff me.

Earlier, Kalu wiped tears from his eyes with a white handkerchief when the Judge was reading an abridged version of the 228-page judgment.

Kalu’s associate, Udeogu, was sentenced to 10 years in prison while the company which was used in committing the fraud, Slok Limited, was ordered to be wound up and all the assets forfeited to the Federal Government.

The case began in 2007, 12 years ago, when they were first arraigned for the offences but before a different judge.
