Former Governor of Abia State and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu, has been hospitalised in Germany and has been pictured commencing a lengthy bed rest.
Kalu’s media aide, Kunle Oyewunmi, said in a statement on Friday that the ex-governor flew to Germany last Monday for “a major surgery” to address “an undisclosed and life-threatening ailment.”
This comes after the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos revoked the ex-Abia State Governor’s bail for failure to appear before it.
The embattled governor is currently being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for an alleged fraud of N7.65bn.
Kalu is standing trial alongside his former Commissioner for Finance, Ude Udeogo, and a company, Slok Nigeria Limited, on the amended 39-count charge of money laundering to the tune of N7.6bn.
