Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court Abuja has made an order prohibiting the federal government through the EFCC or any of its agents from re-trying Kalu for the same offence he was found guilty and convicted.

Justice Ekwo stayed the re-trial while delivering ruling on an application filed by the former Abia state governor seeking the leave of court to file a motion against his re-trial for alleged fraud committed when he served as Governor of Abia State between 1999 to 2007.

Kalu in the application against his re-trial by the EFCC claimed his re-trial will amount to double jeopardy if allowed to go on.
