- While many may be afraid of going to prison, a Nigerian senator has said he is happy for spending some time behind bars
- Senator Kalu who added that a pastor prophecised he would go to prison said the experience has made him a better person
- The senator was jailed in December 2019 but was freed months after, following the nullification of his conviction by the Supreme Court
Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has said his prison conviction was prophesied by a popular Nigerian pastor, Chris Oyekhilome, the general overseer of the Love World Incorporated.
According to Daily Trust, Kalu made this known during a thanksgiving session at the church which is located in Ikeja, Lagos.

Senator Kalu said the prison experience was an eye-opener and something that revealed many secrets to him.
“I am happy that I went to prison. I went to prison and I am out. I am happy because, going to prison has made me a refined, better and more forward looking man.
“I went to prison and discovered many secrets that I never believed that could happen.”
Senator Kalu said being a Catholic, he never believed in prophecy, adding that he didn't believe the pastor's statement about him going to prison would come to pass.
He added that Pastor Chris also told him God would bring him out, noting that nothing could stop the prophecy from happening.
The senator said from now on, he would begin to agree with the pastor's prophecy.

A few months after, specifically in June 2020, the senator was released from Kuje Correctional Centre, Abuja following a Supreme Court judgment which nullified his trial and conviction.
The Supreme Court ruled that the trial and judgment delivered in 2019 was null and void and ordered for a fresh trial while Kalu was subsequently released from prison.
