EFCC Set To Commence A Fresh Trial Of Senator Orji Uzor Kalu

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission stated its readiness to commence a fresh trial of former Governor Orji Kalu immediately.




The EFCC said this in a statement by its Spokesperson, Dele Oyewale, on Friday, while reacting to the order by the Supreme Court.


Where the  court of last resort  upturned Kalu’s conviction and also ordered a fresh trial on the grounds that, the trial judge, Justice Mohammed Idris, was not competent to hear Kanu’s case since he had been elevated to the Court of Appeal.

The corruption and pilferring  charges against Kalu still subsist due to the fact that the Supreme Court did not acquit him of the crimes.


“The entire prosecutorial machinery of the EFCC would be launched in a fresh trial where justice is bound to be served in due course.” Oyawale added.
