Prof. Ojerinde, Former JAMB registrar properties Seized for corruption

The Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) has confiscated some properties attributed to the former Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Prof. Dibu Ojerinde.

According to ICPC, the seizure of the properties followed an ongoing investigation into the “excessive” properties of the former JAMB registrar.

According to the investigation, the commission is of the opinion that the property owned by Mr. Ojerinde is excessive, taking into account his income and other relevant circumstances.

The ICCP said: “The real property owned by Mr. Ojerinde is seized, either by himself or through his attorneys, agents and attorneys listed below.”

Mr. Ojerinde, who now works at the Obafemi Awolowo Ile-Ife University College of Education, Osun State, was JAMB Boss between 2007 and 2016. While in office, the highest amount he sent to the federal government was N3million.

After leaving office, his successor, Ishaq Oloyede, remitted unspent funds of approximately N5 billion in the first year without an increase in JAMB’s charges or fees.

This led many to suspect that Ojerinde was corrupt, especially when he returned a much smaller sum in his nine years as JAMB chief.
