Former Governor of Abia State, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, who bagged 12 years in prison for fraud to the tune of N7.65bn, was heard begging the prison warders, after his sentencing, not to handcuff him in public.

Kalu, who is the Senate Chief Whip, also asked the prison officials “Where are you taking us to?”

The PUNCH reports that, as Kalu and his co-defendants were being removed from the dock by prison officials, they attempted to handcuff him.

The former governor, who appeared shaken, said, “Where are you taking us to now? Please, don’t handcuff me. I will follow you.”
