Former Governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, has finally hired the service of 12 Senior Advocates Nigeria, (SAN), to secure his release from prison.

Orji, the Senate’s Chief Whip, is serving a 12-year jail term at the Kuje Custodial Centre, Abuja, for looting N7.65billion belonging to the Abia State Government during his eight years in office.

He filed a motion on notice on May 12 at the Federal High Court in Lagos, asking it to set him free.

Justice Mohammed Idris, who convicted Kalu last December 5 while a Justice of the Court of Appeal, will not hear this fresh release bid.

The Nation learnt that the case has been assigned to Justice Mohammed Liman.

Justice Idris convicted the Senator on each of the 39 counts.
