The President of the Nigerian Senate, Ahmad Lawan, on Thursday led some senators to the home of Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, who just returned from Kuje prison.
It will be recalled that Kalu, the chief whip of the Nigerian Senate, had been in Kuje prison, Abuja, after he was convicted for fraud and he was handed a 12-year prison term.
However, the Supreme Court later upturned the trial and declared that the trial of Kalu and others convicted alongside him as null and void.
Consequently, a Federal High Court in Lagos on Tuesday ordered for his release and based on that order, the senator was set free the next day, Wednesday. And upon his release, colleagues at the Senate visited him on Thursday, 4 June, 2020.
