Emerging report indicates that a former Governor of Abia State, Senator Orji Uzor-Kalu, has remained in Kuje Prison, because the judgement of the Supreme Court did not apply to him.
The Apex Court, it was learnt, did not issue any order for Kalu’s release, because he did not file any application for such.
The judgement only reportedly covered the Appellant, Mr. Ude Jones Udeogu, who challenged the propriety of a Court of Appeal Judge, Justice Mohammed Idris, to try him.
The Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Correctional Service, Mr. Jaafar Ahmed, has also refused to release Kalu, because there was no order from the Supreme Court for his release.
It was learnt that Kalu may have to approach the Court of Appeal, where he has a pending matter, to ask for his release, following the dismissal of the judgement of the Federal High Court, Lagos, by the Supreme Court.
According to a copy of the judgement, the Supreme Court clearly stated that the judgement relates only to the Appellant.
