PHOTO: Did Orji Kalu go and beg Abba Kyari in this photo as claimed? | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f


A picture of Orji Uzor Kalu, former governor of Abia state, kneeling down alongside Geoffrey Onyeama, minister of foreign affairs, is circulating online.

In a message shared on social media particularly on Whatsapp, Kalu, who was recently convicted of fraud, was said to be begging Abba Kyari, President Muhammadu Buhari’s chief of staff, to be pardoned of his crime.

The plea is said to be in connection with a recent fraud conviction for N7.1 billion which he committed during his time as governor.

The message in circulation claims that Kalu, who currently represents Abia north at the senate, was begging to not go to jail — “but it didn’t work”.
However, TheCable reports that the claim is not true.

TheCable reports that the picture was taken on November 24, inside Kalu’s compound in Abia state.

Onyeama had joined others at the former governor’s house to celebrate the Christ the King feast, an annual celebration by the Catholic church.

A video of the celebration also showed those in attendance while a priest officiated the ceremony.

  1. Fake News. Why passing off a scene where these people were praying during Christ the King as where they are kneeling and begging Abba Kyari? Fake news and deception at it again. The story is contradictory too.

  2. Are you sure you can read or read the write up at all... The writer said the picture was circulating online and people assumed that or were peddling rumour that Orji went to beg Abba Kyari... The writer is saying such rumour is false and also explained why Orji was kneeling down. I hope I’ve helped you understand better.. Don’t mention, you’re welcome
