A statement signed on Wednesday by ICPC Spokesperson, Azuka Ogugua,  said the former JAMB Boss was arrested on March 15, 2021, in Abuja.

“The former JAMB boss is also being questioned by the Commission for allegedly awarding fraudulent contracts to shell companies which cannot be traced, the statement read in part.

‘’Ojerinde was also alleged to have awarded contracts for the supply of pencil and eraser at the cost of N450 million each, to Double 07 Concept Limited and Pristine Global Concept Limited, respectively, between 2013 and 2014 while heading JAMB.’’

“There is no evidence to show that the items which are examination materials were supplied as the contractors cannot be found.

“Similar contracts were allegedly awarded to Solid Figures Limited, Holywalk Limited, and other companies for various sums without any trace of executions,” Ogugua said in the statement.

According to the statement, Ojerinde is currently being held on a remand warrant and will soon be charged to court upon the conclusion of the investigation.
