ICPC Re-arrests Former JAMB Registrar Dibu Ojerinde
Dibu Ojerinde, a former registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has been re-arrested by operatives of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences (ICPC).
This is coming after Jimoh Olabisi, a former Deputy Director at JAMB and witness of the ICPC, alleged in court on Wednesday, January 25, that Ojerinde used him to divert federal government funds.
The former registrar who has been accused of committing multiple frauds while heading JAMB and the National Examination Council (NECO), was arraigned on July 6, 2021, on an 18-count charge bordering on alleged misappropriation of funds to the tune of N5.2 billion.
TheCable reported that Ojerinde who pleaded not guilty to the allegations and was granted bail in the sum of N200 million, was arrested by ICPC officials in Abuja on Thursday, January 26, at the premises of a Federal High court.
