<!– Dr. Orji Kalu –>
The Supreme Court had nullified his trial where he was jailed for 12 years over money laundering to the tune of N7.65 billion, and ordered fresh trial.
But Kalu was still being kept in prison despite the Supreme Court’s judgment.
On the list of his 12-man team of lawyers are Prince Lateef Fagbemi SAN; Awa U. Kalu SAN; Chris Uche SAN; Dr. U. Olatoke, SAN; Chef H.O Alolabi, SAN; Sylvester Elema SAN; Ikoro N. A. Ikoro; Omosanya Popoola; C. Obidike; Nnamdi Awa Kalu; Vivien Udora and A S. Amire.
According to The Nation, in the motion, he argued that no legal basis existed for his continued incarceration because the Supreme Court on May 8 pronounced his trial a nullity and freed his co-defendant Jones Udeogu.
