Naija News has obtained the full list of the 22 Computer-Based Test Centres (CBT) suspended by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) for various infractions during the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
This online news platform understands that the development has raised fears that results from those centres may be cancelled.
JAMB had on April 22 said no fewer than 100 UTME candidates were arrested nationwide by operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and the police.
In a related development, JAMB says it has appointed a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) to prosecute about 100 persons allegedly involved in various malpractices during the 2019 UTME that held between April 11 and 18.
Naija News reports that JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, disclosed this on Friday in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital while speaking on ‘Admissions into tertiary educational institutions in Nigeria’ at the 23rd annual seminar of the Nigerian Academy of Education.
The JAMB Registrar narrated how its Closed Circuit Television Cameras caught exam cheats in some CBT centres, saying professional writers hid in toilets and later replaced the UTME candidates who pretended they went to the toilet to ease themselves.
