Orji Kalu who was sentenced to 12 years in prison at a Federal High Court in Lagos on the 5th of December for N7.1bn fraud when he was still the governor of Abia state.

The bail application was filed in a court today, Kalu begged that he should be granted post-conviction bail on health grounds. In his appeal, the Abia North senator claims he has health issues that cannot be treated with medical facilities available in the prison.

He claims that his offences were bailable and that he should be set free by the court while he challenges his conviction by Justice Mohammed Idris at the Court of Appeal.

He also stated that his work as Senator representing Abia North and also his position as chief whip of the senate would suffer if he is not free to attend to them.

His post-conviction bail application has been opposed by EFCC. According to them, Orji Kalu cannot receive bail after he has been convicted by a competent court. 

His bail application has been adjourned to December 23rd.
