A former Nigerian governor has been docked by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission as the fight against corruption intensities.
Orji Kalu, a former Governor of Abia State, is currently in the dock before a Federal High Court in Lagos.
According to The Punch, the ex governor is answering alleged corruption charges by the EFCC.
Kalu and others had been initially arraigned in 2007 before Justice Adamu Bello of the Federal High Court, Abuja (now retired).
They were arraigned in an amended 34-count charge over an alleged diversion of about N3.2bn from the Abia State Government’s treasury during Kalu’s tenure as governor.
