The Independent Corrupt Practices Commission, ICPC, has dragged the former Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, and four of his children before a Federal High Court, sitting in Abuja, over N5-billion money laundering charges.
Prof. Ojerinde and his companies had earlier been charged before Justice Obiora Egwuatu, for money laundering charges in the tune of N5-billion.
He was accused of diverting public funds, while serving as the National Examinations Council and JAMB Registrar.
However, in the fresh charges marked: FHC/ABJ/CR/119/23, before Justice Inyang, ICPC filed a seven-count charge against Ojerinde, alongside his four children namely; Mary Funmilola, Olumide Abiodun, Adedayo and Oluwaseun Adeniyi.
Also, joined in the charges are all his companies, which include: Doyin Ogbohi Petroleum Ltd, Cheng Marbles Ltd, Sapati International Schools Ltd, Trillium Learnings Centre Ltd and Standout Institutes Ltd.
Prof. Ojerinde and the other defendants were yet to take a plea, as at the time of filing the reports.
