People who want a probe of former governor of Abia state, T.A Orji and his son Chinedu Orji, are now gaining members daily.

In a new development, Abians for Equity, a socio-cultural group in the state has urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to show determination in probing the former governor.

Orji was alleged to have looted the state treasury to the tune of N150 billion when he was the governor of the state.

The group disclosed this in a statement signed by its president, Mazi Okezie Egwuatu.

Going further, the group lamented that the reign of T.A Orji has greatly affected the state. They specifically said Abia is now in a state of misery, squalor, poverty and pity.

They also alleged that Abia remains the only state that is battered beyond measure with impunity by the said family.

Consequently, the group asked the EFCC to tidy up their investigation and ensure justice is done for the benefit of Abia people.

They insisted if Orji Uzor Kalu could be jailed for stealing, then there is no reason why T.A Orji and his son should not be made to account for the money they allegedly misappropriated while ruining Abia for the past 13 years.

The group also insisted that Abians are waiting and watching what the EFCC would do.

He was accused of collecting N500 million monthly purported to be security vote which was being converted.

Legit.ng had also reported that the Supreme Court upheld the judgment of the Court of Appeal which affirmed the conviction of Nyame and handed him 12-year imprisonment.
