A former Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Prof. Adedibu Ojerinde has been re-arrested by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

The anti-corruption agency spokesperson Azuka Ogugua said he was arrested on Thursday in Abuja.

According to the statement, Prof. Ojerinde’s re-arrest followed a warrant issued by the Federal High Court in Abuja.

Ogugua said Prof. Ojerinde is expected to face a team of investigators over new evidence uncovered in relation to his ongoing trial for diversion of funds while he was a public officer.

According to her, 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 statement further explained that the Commission had on the 12th of December 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 honour the invitation.

It said Ojerinde, however, refused to honour the invitation as undertaken by his counsel after the expiration of the 14 days grace on 27th December 2022.
