Last Updated on

Justice Mohammed Liman of the federal high court has dismissed Orji Uzor Kalu’s application for bail pending determination of his appeal against his fraud conviction.

According to the judge, the applicant failed to prove exceptional circumstances that would warrant granting bail.

Justice Liman said that there was no evidence to show the applicant was suffering from chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension.

The former governor is currently serving a 12years jail term handed in him for fraud and money laundering. He was convicted earlier this month, of N7.1bn fraud and sentenced to 12years imprisonment
