A former governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor Kalu, has reportedly spoken about his condition in prison – Federal High Court in Lagos had sentenced him to 12 years imprisonment over N7.65 billion fraud – Kalu reportedly told his visitor how he was eating in prison A report by The Nation indicates that a former governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor Kalu, narrated how he was being fed in the prison. Legit.ng had reported how the Senate chief whip was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment by a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos over N7.65 billion fraud perpetrated while he held sway as Abia state governor. It would be recalled that Kalu became the governor of Abia state when he was not yet 40 and ruled the state for eight years between 1999 and 2007. According to the newspaper, Sentry gathered that the reality of his new condition did not dawn on Kalu until some of his associates began to visit him in the prison.

 

The former governor had asked the prison officials who led him out of the court after the judge pronounced his conviction: “Where are we going now?” It was gathered that a few days after he landed in prison, one of his business associates was said to have paid him a sympathy visit but was shocked at the pitiable picture cut by the former governor, who was said to be wearing a pair of bathroom slippers. “See me now eating in the prison,” a pensive Kalu reportedly told his visitor, who struggled to find the words that could console him. It was also learnt that an Kalu’s erstwhile colleague as governor, who spent some time in incarceration, also visited him. The report had it that the flamboyant ex-governor advised him to stay strong and regard his travails as another phase of life.

How the anointed were jailed in Enugu for forgery and conspiracy.

The Chief Magistrate of an Enugu magistrates’ court, J. O. Umezulike, has convicted four pastors in the state, including the General Overseer, Christian Charismatic Movement, Dr Sabinus Onuigbo, for forgery and conspiracy.

While delivering judgment on Wednesday in a suit with no CME/56C/2017, the chief magistrate sentenced Onuigbo to seven years imprisonment without option of fine, while his conspirators – Pastors Tony Chukwu, Chukwuma Victor and Nick Nwoye – were handed three years jail term each with an option of N20,000 fine.

Enugu State Police Command had arraigned the convicts: Onuigbo, Ojukwu, Victor, Nwoye and one Tony Ike before the magistrates’ court in 2017 for alleged forgery and conspiracy.

 

Onuigbo and the three pastors were said to have forged the signature of one Pastor Sunny Ndolo of the same church who resigned in 2011, in the minutes of the church’s meeting held on July 14, 2014.

Angered by the development, one Mr Innocent Ngwu reported the case to the police. After investigation, the convicts were charged.

Delivering the judgment on Wednesday, the court held that the prosecution proved its case against the four pastors beyond reasonable doubt. He, however, acquitted Ike.

The judgment read in part, “The sole issue for determination was the forgery of Rev. Sunny Ndolo’s signature. The defence did not debunk or contradict it all through with their defence. As Lord Denning would say, ‘you cannot put something on nothing and expect it to stand.’ Prosecution proved their case beyond reasonable doubt.”

 

Magistrate Onuzulike held that the defence resorted to underhand tactics to undermine the judgment of the court, The Chaief Magistrate said, “As the proceeding was on going, there was intermittent interference. But facts before the court found four of the accused guilty while the fifth accused was not a party to the allegations.

“Nevertheless I convict the 1st – 4th accused persons for the offence of forgery and conspiracy as in SS. 495(a); 443(1); 449 and 453 of CC Laws of Enugu state 2004 and sentence 1st accused to seven years in prison; 2nd to 4th accused also to three years in prison or option of fine of N20,000 each excluding the 1st defendant.

“The 5th defendant is not a party per se in the entire transaction. He is an innocent passerby. In accordance with S.386 of ACJL he is discharged and acquitted.”
