The federal government is to arraign Dibu Ojerinde, former registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), on a seven-count charge bordering on money laundering at the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court.
Mr Ojerinde is arraigned alongside his four children, Mary Funmilola, Olumide Abiodun, Adedayo and Oluwaseun Adeniyi, by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) before Justice Inyang Ekwo.
Mr Ojerinde and his companies are facing a money laundering charge of N5 billion before Justice Obiora Egwuatu.
He was accused of diverting public funds while serving as National Examinations Council and NAMB registrar.
However, the ex-JAMB boss and his four children were included in the fresh charge marked FHC/ABJ/CR/119/23.
Also joined in the charge are all alleged companies, including Doyin Ogbohi Petroleum Ltd, Cheng Marbles Ltd, Sapati International Schools Ltd, Trillium Learnings Centre Ltd and Standout Institutes Ltd.
Mr Ojerinde and the 10 defendants have yet to take a plea.
