One Killed As Gunmen Attack JAMB Officials In Lagos

A yet to be identified gang of gunmen on Wednesday reportedly attacked officials of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in Lagos State.

Reports reaching Naija News at the time confirmed that the assailants at midnight of Tuesday stormed the Mabila Hotel in Ikorodu, Lagos State, where they attacked and robbed officials of the examination body.

They are said to have killed the gateman of the hotel before raiding rooms in the hotel.

Confirming the attack, the State Police spokesman, SP Benjamin Hundeyin told newsmen that the JAMB officials had been immediately relocated to a safe place following the incident.

Why We Have Not Released UTME Results – JAMB

The Registrar of the Joint Admissions And Matriculation Board, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, has revealed why JAMB is yet to release the results of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

According to Oloyede, the examination body is yet to release results due to internal appraisal.

He noted JAMB wouldn’t want to release results because it had asked people to submit reports, particularly of malpractices.

The JAMB Registrar stated this in an interview with Punch on Tuesday, during a meeting of the National Youth Service Corps management and with Registrars of Corps Producing Institutions in Nigeria.
