  • Ultimatetimes TV understands that inspite being listed among the 50 high- profile Nigerians barred by the Federal Government from travelling out of the country over allegedly record of  corrupt practices,  a former Governor of Abia State , Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu , has gone to Germany for surgery.

    Kalu's media aide, Kunle Oyewunmi , who revealed this, said his principal left the country on Monday aboard a Lufthansa aircraft.

    However, Kalu , who is now a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress , according to Oyewunmi , left for Wiesbaden , Germany , alongside his wife, Ifunanya.

    The former governor was said to have traveled for “ a major surgery” to address “ an undisclosed and life -threatening ailment. ”

    Kalu , alongside his company , Slok Nigeria Limited , and a former Director of Accounts and Finance at the Abia State Government House , Ude Udeogu , are facing N 7 . 65 bn fraud charges before the Federal High Court
    in Lagos.

    The 11 - year-old case was in September adjourned sine die ( indefinitely) by Justice Mohammed Idris , who had been elevated to the Court of Appeal.

    The fate of the case remains vague. In a statement made available to us on Friday, Oyewunmi said Kalu was rushed in an ambulance to Helios Klinik , Wiesbaden , Germany on Tuesday and was immediately wheeled into the surgical theatre.

    Oyewunmi quoted Kalu ’ s wife, Ifunanya, as saying that the surgery was successful, adding that the ex-governor had regained consciousness.

    According to the media aide, Ifunanya , in a quavering voice , over the telephone on Friday, “ lamented her husband ’ s health status ”.

    “ Although the surgery was successful , my husband will still have to be monitored closely by a medical team for at least four months in order to prevent complications.
    “ His condition is improving gradually.

    “ He will be fine , if he is able to keep to his doctor ’ s advice .

    “ We appreciate the prayers and kind words from friends, associates , well - wishers and Nigerians in general,” Oyewunmi quoted Ifunanya to have said.
