Former Governor of Abia State and Chief Whip of the Senate, Dr. Orji Kalu has described the invasion of the Abuja residence of Justice Mary Odili of the Supreme Court of Nigeria as a cruel, undemocratic and uncivilized act.
Condemning the Gestapo raid on the house of the Judge, Kalu called on the federal government to commence a full-scale investigation into the ugly incident, adding that the unwarranted invasion of the house of the Judge is capable of causing tension in the country.


Kalu, who is also the Chief Whip of the Senate, stressed that in a democratic setup, the rule of law must be strictly adhered to for the sake of national progress and development.


The former Governor while condemning the sad incident, urged appropriate government agencies to discharge their duties and responsibilities in tandem with the constitution, noting that violation of human rights will set the country backwards.


Kalu, who made these assertions on Saturday, while reacting to raid on the residence of Odili, called on the federal government to bring the perpetrators of the evil act to book, adding that unlawful invasion of a citizen’s residence is against the constitution of Nigeria and tenets of democracy.

He said, ” the invasion of the residence of Justice Mary Odili of the Supreme Court in a Gestapo manner is totally condemnable and unacceptable in a democratic dispensation.


“The country’s democracy is gradually growing and as such, acts that are not in tandem with the constitution of Nigeria and democratic process must not be tolerated.
