Dibu Ojerinde: No bail for ex-JAMB boss in ‘N900 million fraud case’

A federal high court in Abuja has refused to grant Prof. Dibu Ojerinde bail.

Ojerinde is a former registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

He is being prosecuted by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) over alleged fraud.

Justice Obiora Egwuatu, on Tuesday, declined the oral application for bail by counsel to the defendant, P. O. Olorunishola, SAN, after ICPC lawyer Ebenezer Shogunle opposed the submission.

The former chief executive officer of JAMB is the sole defendant in the suit marked: CR/97/21 bordering on alleged misappropriation of about N900 million.
