EFCC loses bid to transfer Uzor Kalu’s N7.1bn fraud case to Lagos


EFCC loses bid to transfer Uzor Kalu’s N7.1bn fraud case to Lagos

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Friday, failed to persuade the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja to transfer the money laundering case it initiated against the former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, to Lagos for retrial.

The court, in a judgement that was delivered by Justice Inyang Ekwo, held that the request by the anti-graft agency, lacked merit.

Justice Ekwo held that EFCC’s application amounted to an abuse of the judicial process, stressing that the Abuja Division of the court has the requisite jurisdiction to handle the case.
