The Federal High Court in Abuja has fixed July 22 for ruling in the application by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, seeking to move the trial of former Abia State Governor, Orji Kalu fraud charges to Lagos state.

The presiding judge, Inyang Ekwo fixed the date after EFCC and Kalu’s lawyer adopted their final addresses for and against the application.

While fixing a new date for the ruling, Justice Ekwo ordered that parties be issued with hearing notice.

The anti-graft agency in the application argued that the money laundering charges for which the former governor was charged were committed in Lagos state and not in Abuja.
