EFCC detains Orji Kalu’s aides


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Thursday detained six officials of the Abia State Government at its headquarters in Lagos.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Thursday detained six officials of the Abia State Government at its headquarters in Lagos.

The six officials were among the 18 declared wanted on October 10 by the EFCC over alleged money laundering and diversion of public funds.

Also declared wanted was Eunice, mother of the state Governor, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu.

The six persons were said to have showed up at the commission‘s head office following a directive by the state executive council on Wednesday.

The six officials are the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Local Government, Mr. O. Okeke; the governor‘s Chief of Staff, Mr. C.A Orji; the deputy Chief of Staff, Mr. Chuka Odom; Government House Accountant, Mr. Jones Udorgu; Mr. Romanus Madu, and Mr. M.A Udoh.

They were said to have failed to go to court to stop the commission from arresting them.

The EFCC was said to have mixed up the names of some of those it declared wanted.

For instance, the former Commissioner for Local Government, Mr. Law Maduka, whose name appeared on the list was said to have died five months ago.

He was replaced by Mr. Chris Usuagwu only on Wednesday.

The commission also listed the ”Commissioner for Local Government” as one of the persons wanted.

There was also one Okey Udeh, who was listed as a cashier but who did not exist.

The two brothers of the governor – Mascot Ikweche Kalu and Johnson Uzor – and their mother, had gone to court to stop the EFCC from arresting them.

This is a great piece of history, which is dear to our hearts as people and very much appreciated.

Many thanks to the people who worked hard in the past and those who are still making efforts to keep the institution.

The labour is obviouly worth it. We are proud of you all.

A lot still to be done, with the motivation of the champions of this course, others will follow as well to maintain the institution

May God continue to keep the edifice for development of future generations to the glory of God and the benefits of our fatherland.
