The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission Monday re-arraigned the former Abia State Governor, Orji Uzor Kalu, before the Lagos Division of the Federal High Court 34 counts of money laundering.
Also arraigned before the court are Udeh Udeogu, a former Director of Finance in the state, and Slok Nigeria Limited.
Mr. Kalu, who served as governor between 1999 and 2007, was first arraigned in 2007 on a 96-count charge of money laundering.
After a lengthy legal battle, the Supreme Court, in 2016, ordered him to stand trial.
