On Wednesday, former Abia State Governor, Orji Uzor Kalu, has been released from Kuje Custodial Centre by the Nigeria Correctional Service.

He was released from custody around 5:05 pm after his warrant for release was received by prison.

Kalu was jailed for 12 years on December 5, 2019, after he was convicted of N7.1 billion fraud alongside his firm, Slok Nigeria Ltd., and a former Director of Finance in Abia State, Jones Udeogu.
