On Wednesday the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has arrested an ex-Registrar and Chief Executive Officer of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Dibu Ojerinde.
“He was 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”, ICPC said.
The commission said there is no evidence to show that the items, which are examination materials, were supplied as the contractors cannot be found.
According to the ICPC, similar contracts were allegedly awarded to Solid Figures Limited, Holywalk Limited, and other companies for various sums without any trace of execution.
Prof. Ojerinde will be charged to court after the conclusion of the investigation
