Senate President Lawan Leads Senators, Ministers To Orji Kalu’s Residence After He Was Released From Prison (Photos)

Senate President Ahmad Lawan on Thursday night led a delegation of Senate leadership to visit the Senate Chief Whip , Senator Orji Uzor Kalu in his Aso Villa residence , Abuja.

The visit took place one day after Kalu, a former governor of Abia, was released from prison following his conviction by a federal high court in Lagos.

Kalu alongside Ude Jones Udeogu, a former director of finance and account of Abia state were arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on 36 counts of money laundering to the tune of N7.1 billion and they were jailed in December.

But they appealed the verdict of the court.

The host and his visitors all wore face masks but did not observe social distancing when they posed for photographs.
