Just In: ICPC Rearrests Ex-JAMB Registrar, Ojerinde

The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) rearrested former Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Adedibu Ojerinde, on Thursday, January 26, 2023.

Mrs. Azuka Ogugua, the spokesperson for the ICPC, said in a statement that Ojerinde was rearrested following a warrant issued by the Federal High Court in Abuja.

He will be facing a team of ICPC investigators over new evidence uncovered in relation to his ongoing trial for the diversion of funds while he was a public officer.

Ogugua said that the rearrest of Ojerinde was due to his refusal to honor the commission’s invitation extended to him in December 2022.

The statement read, “ICPC operatives uncovered two accounts opened in the names of Trillium Learning Centre Ltd. and Sapati International Schools Ltd., into which funds were diverted using fictitious names of students.”

“The Commission had, on December 12, 2022, invited the former JAMB Registrar for questioning over the new evidence, but he wrote through his solicitor requesting 14 days’ grace to enable him to honor the invitation.

“Ojerinde, however, refused to honor the invitation as undertaken by his counsel after the expiration of the 14-day grace period on December 27, 2022.

“In the course of its ongoing investigation, the Commission unearthed new evidence that suggests that Ojerinde is the sole signatory to various bank accounts operated in the name of Trillium Learning Centre Ltd and Sapati International School Ltd.

“Ojerinde reportedly operated those accounts using false identities and forged documents in the names of Joshua Olakulehin Olaniran and Akanbi Lamidi, respectively.
