The former Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Professor Adedibu Ojerinde wants the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission to grant him soft landing over an alleged N5bn fraud.

Ojerinde on Tuesday at the Federal High Court in Abuja asked for a 24 hours out-of-court settlement with the ICPC through a plea bargain.

Lead counsel to Ojerinde, Ibrahim Ishyaku (SAN) revealed that the trial could continue if, after 24 hours, the impasse was not resolved.

On the other hand, counsel to ICPC, Ebenezer Sogunle, insisted that the trial would proceed in case the plea bargain fails.
