Share This

The former JAMB Registrar, Professor Adedibu Ojerinde, has been granted bail.

It was gathered that Justice Obiora Egwuatu of the Federal High Court in Abuja has granted bail to the former Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Professor Adedibu Ojerinde.
This online platform understands that the bail granted was in the sum of 200 million naira (N200,000,000) and two sureties in like sum, who also must be resident in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

According to Justice Egwuatu, one of the sureties must be a professor in a Federal University, and the other, a property owner in Abuja.

The residences of the sureties must be verified by the prosecution, the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

While adjourning the case to the 22nd of July for trial, the judge ordered that the former registrar deposits his international passport with the court.

Professor Ojerinde is facing an 18 count charge where he is accused of complicity in the diversion of public funds estimated at over 5.2 billion naira.

Earlier in March, ICPC announced that the Commission had arrested Ojerinde (at the time) for allegedly misappropriating N900 million.

He is said to have committed multiple frauds while heading JAMB and the National Examination Council (NECO).
