Justice Mohammed Liman of the Federal High Court in Lagos Tuesday fixed December 23 for ruling on the application filed by the convicted former Governor of Abia State, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, for bail pending the determination of the appeal against his sentence and imprisonment.

Justice Mohammed Idris had recently convicted and sentenced Kalu to a concurrent term of 12 years imprisonment over N7.2billion fraud.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) charged and prosecuted Kalu together with his former Commissioner for Finance, Jonnes Ude Udeogo, and a company, Slok Nigeria Ltd, on an amended 39 counts charge of fraud.
