The Federal High Court, Abuja, on Tuesday, declined granting bail to Dibu Ojerinde, a former Registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), who is being prosecuted for corruption by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).
The trial judge, Obiora Egwuatu, turned down the oral application for bail by defence counsel, P.O Olorunishola, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that ICPC’s prosecuting lawyer, Ebenezer Shogunle, opposed the defence lawyer’s submission.
The former chief executive officer of JAMB is the sole defendant in the suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CR/97/21 bordering on alleged misappropriation of about N900 million.
