The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) had earlier reported that
Ojerinde is being 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.
Ojerinde, in a suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/179/2023 filed before Justice Obiora Egwuatu, is seeking an order to enforce his fundamental rights, following his re-arrest on January 26 within the court premises and his subsequent detention.
The Registrar of the board, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, who made this known at a news conference Monday in Abuja, said the DE registration would come to a close on April 28.
The shift in date is partly owing to the change in the date for the Governorship and State Houses of Assembly Elections earlier scheduled to hold on Saturday, March 11, 2023, but now moved to March 18, 2023, the examination board said in a statement on Monday afternoon.
The Head, Public Affairs and Protocol of the board, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made this known in a statement issued Wednesday in Abuja.
Justice Egwuatu stated this following counsel to Ojerinde, Eteya Ogana’s argument that the claim by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) that an arrest warrant was obtained for his client’s re-arrest was untrue.
This is contained in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja Wednesday by the Head, Public Affairs and Protocol of the board, Dr Fabian Benjamin.
Oloyede made the call at the official presentation of a book, entitled: “Efficiency in Jurisprudence and Constitutional Development in Africa,” on Monday in Ilorin.
Its Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, disclosed this in Abuja on Saturday during a monitoring of some CBT centres in Abuja.

The suspension, which was with immediate effect, followed what the Board described as ‘criminal extortion’ of innocent candidates participating in the ongoing registration exercise nationwide for the 2023 UTME.
Oloyede noted that while there were no cases of extortion by any of the centres, one of them was suspended for having only one CCTV camera.
