Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has been released from Kuje Custodial Centre, Abuja where he was serving a 12-year sentence.
The former governor was released following an order to that effect by the Federal High Court in Lagos.
Justice Mohammad Liman of the Federal High Court in Lagos ordered the release of Kalu on Tuesday, June 2.
It was gathered that, he was released around 7.30pm on Wednesday, June 3.
Kalu was convicted in December 2019 for alleged looting of N7.65b belonging to Abia state. His conviction was, however, nullified by the Supreme Court while a retrial was ordered.
