Olabisi, a witness of the ICPC, spoke at the federal high court in Abuja.
The ICPC had arraigned Ojerinde on July 6, 2021, on an 18-count charge bordering on alleged misappropriation of funds to the tune of N5.2 billion.
The commission alleged that the former registrar committed multiple frauds while heading JAMB and the National Examination Council (NECO).
Ojerinde pleaded not guilty to the allegations and was granted bail in the sum of N200 million.
It was gathered that Ojerinde was arrested in Abuja on Thursday at the premises of a federal High court.
He was brought to the court and was leaving after the hearing of the case when he was picked up, a source at the court said.
