Prof. Dibu Ojerinde
By Our Reporter
For former Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Dibu Ojerinde and his four children, these are indeed bad moments.
This is because the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission ICPC has dragged Ojerinde before a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja over alleged N5 billion fraud.
Prof. Ojerinde was JAMB registrar between 2012 and 2016.
He was arraigned on Friday on seven-count charge bordering on money laundering.
The former NECO registrar and his companies, Doyin Ogbohi Petroleum Limited, Cheng Marbles Limited, Sapati International Schools Limited, Trillium Learnings Centre Limited, and Standout Institutes Limited are facing a money laundering charge to the tune of N5 billion before Justice Obiora Egwuatu.
He was arraigned alongside his four children, Mary Funmilola, Olumide Abiodun, Adedayo, and Oluwaseun Adeniyi, before Justice Inyang Ekwo on Friday.
He was accused of diverting public funds while he served as National Examinations Council (NECO) and JAMB Registrar.
Prof Ojerinde had been interrogated by the anti graft agency and charged to court before his present ordeal.
