Orji Uzor Kalu plans return to Nigeria from medical treatment to commence court trial


Former Abia State governor, Orji Uzor Kalu, has disclosed that he would return to Nigeria on November 30 after a successful surgical operation last month.

Kalu whose absence in court, following the medical treatment, caused Justice Mohammad Idris of the Federal High Court to revoke his bail, declared that members of the Bench deserved respect as their decision in court “must be respected until set aside at a superior jurisdiction.

He also thanked Nigerians who have shown concern about his health condition as he recuperates from the medical procedure.

Kalu said he had, on three occasions, postponed such “medical appointments in order to present himself in court because he has respect for the courts.
