Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the federal government and Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) not to retry former governor of Abia state, Orji Uzo Kalu, for the N1.7 billion fraud case he was previously convicted of.

Inyang Ekwo made the order while delivering judgment on the application filed by Kalu seeking to stop his retrial on the ground that such a retrial would be akin to double jeopardy.

The judge ruled that there was no order directing a retrial of Kalu, since the judgment of the Supreme Court did not affect Kalu.

However, the court ordered a retrial for former Commissioner of Finance, Jones Udeogu, who was convicted along with Kalu.
