Former Abia State Governor, Uzor Kalu, has gone into hiding occasioned by the warrant of arrest against him, issued by the US government over the murder of his mistress Chinwe Ogbona in USA few years ago.
It will be recalled that Kalu was accused murdering his mistress in his Portomarc mansion after several rounds of “enjoyment” with the lady who is said to be a shop attendant in the US.
Ex-Governor Kalu who was in company of his brother Nnanna Kalu when the incident happened disappeared into the thin air, escaping arrest…The family of the deceased with the help of some well-connected individuals has been on the case to ensure that Kalu who has not entered the US since that period is brought to book.
It was learnt that the manhunt for Kalu has started in earnest having been declared wanted by the authorities.
Further investigations revealed that the search for Kalu by the Interpol has been extended to other Countries and Nigeria is not an exception.
Kalu in the past few weeks have gone into hiding, as he no longer appears publicly in Nigeria, as was the case some months ago.
The family of the deceased it was reliably gathered has petitioned President Goodluck Jonathan and the IG on the issue. A source at the IG’s office confirmed that the petition has been received and the IG is said to be working on the case discreetly.
