ENUGU – The Ndigbo Unity Forum (NUF), a pan-Igbo socio-political pressure group, has hailed the Federal High Court, Lagos, for the judgment delivered against former Abia State Governor, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu.
President of the forum, Mr. Augustine Chukwudum, told newsmen on Saturday, in Enugu: “NUF commends the judiciary for excellent judgment delivered against the former Abia State Governor for money laundering during his eight years tenure in the state.
“We also commend the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for fighting to the finish despite all the blackmail carried against the commission and delay tactics deployed by counsels to Sen. Kalu.”
The NUF boss, however, called on EFCC to prosecute other ex-governors from the South-East and nationwide.
Kalu, who is a serving Senator, was on Thursday sentenced to 12 years prison term for a N7.56 billion fraud perpetrated while he was governor of Abia State. (News Express)
