The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has rearrested a former Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, Prof. Adedibu Ojerinde, following a warrant issued by the Federal High Court, Abuja.

The spokesperson for the anti-graft agency, Azuka Ogugua, revealed that 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 honour the invitation.

However, Ojerinde refused to honour the invitation after the expiration of the 14-day grace period on December 27, 2022.

In the course of the investigation, it was gathered that Ojerinde operated various bank accounts using false identities and forged documents in the names of Joshua Olakulehin Olaniran and Akanbi Lamidi, in the name of Trillium Learning Centre and Sapati International School Limited, respectively.

He also reportedly used another false identity, Adeniyi Banji, to operate a separate account in the name of Standout Institutes Limited.

The former JAMB registrar is to be prosecuted before the court for offences involving forgery of documents, stolen identity, money laundering, and concealment of gratification.
