Nigeria, May 8 -- Orji Kalu, a Nigerian senator who was jailed for allegedly stealing public funds, has been released from custody, PREMIUM TIMES has learnt.
Mr Kalu, a former Abia State governor, was freed from the Nigerian correctional facility in Kuje, Abuja, on Friday morning, two sources familiar with the development said.
He has now moved to his residence off Queen Amina Street within the perimeter of Aso Rock Presidential Villa, sources said. The sources spoke under anonymity because they were close to Mr Orji and did not get immediate permission from him to disclose his release to the press.
Mr Kalu's release came moments after the Supreme Court voided his conviction in December 2019 in a multi-billion naira corruption trial.
