Ejesgist.ng learned that the ICPC had previously obtained a warrant for the former JAMB boss’ arrest even though ICPC agents refused to say why he was re-arrested.
According to information gathered, Justice John Tsoho, the Chief Judge of the High Court, issued the arrest warrant after the ICPC filed an ex-parte application.
In his Evidence-In-Chief before the court, Mr. Jimoh Olabisi, a former Deputy Director of Finance at the examination body who testified as a witness in Ojerinde’s trial, made indicting revelations that were not included in the charge already pending against the Defendant.

“The Defendant still has a lot of things we want him to explain, but because he’s been out on bail, he’s been hesitant to meet with the Commission.

After the trial Justice Obiora Egwatu adjourned further proceedings in the ongoing 18-count charge the ICPC preferred against Ojerinde, he was detained as he was walking to his car with one of his sons.
