Emerging reports claimed that a former governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor Kalu, has narrated how he was being fed in the prison.
The Herald reported that Kalu was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment by a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos over N7.65 billion fraud.
The former governor had asked the prison officials who led him out of the court after the judge pronounced his conviction: “Where are we going now?”
The reports further disclosed that the awful truth of his new condition was not dawn on Kalu until some of his associates began to visit him in the prison.
It was gathered that a few days after he landed in prison, one of his business associates was said to have paid him a sympathy visit but was shocked at the pitiable picture cut by the former governor, who was said to be wearing a pair of bathroom slippers.
“See me now eating in the prison,” Kalu reportedly told his visitor, who struggled to find the words that could console him. It was also learnt that an Kalu’s erstwhile colleague as governor, who spent some time in incarceration, also visited him.
