The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has said
some fraudsters are currently swindling candidates of the
ongoing Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination by
selling fake examination questions to them for as much as
N200 , 000 .
The JAMB Registrar , Prof Is – haq Oloyede , disclosed this
on Monday during a briefing , adding that thousands of
candidates who chose the Ladoke Akintola University of
Technology , Ogbomoso , Oyo State , as their centre , would
be moved to Kwara State , because of the ongoing protests
by the student union of the institution .
Oloyede , who held the briefing after monitoring the UTME
in some centres in Abuja , was accompanied by the
Minister of State for Education, Prof Anthony Anwukah .
The JAMB registrar noted that the fraudsters took UTME
past question papers and changed the date to the present
year , selling to gullible candidates .
He said , “ On Monday morning , somebody sent me some
questions . The syndicate behind it called it Orijo , and a
candidate bought it for N200 , 000 . When I saw it, it was
our questions in 1984 and the syndicate simply put 2017 on
it. They started selling the questions and people were
buying it.
“ So , if candidates are corrupt , JAMB cannot have
sympathy . The syndicate is smart . They went into the
UTME past questions and just changed the heading .
Another person called me and said he had all the UTME
questions . I just laughed when I checked the item,
because some dubious persons are making money from
gullible candidates .
“ As of Monday , about 440 , 000 candidates have taken the
examination. We have finished in some states and some
states will continue on Thursday . But by Friday, we should
be over .
“ We understand the case in LAUTECH . We have taken
care of our two centres on the campus . Arrangements are
being made to transfer the students , because there are no
private CBT centres in Ogbomoso . If the workers and
students do not call off their strike in Ogbomoso by
Tuesday , we will reschedule all the registered candidates
there to Ilorin , Kwara State . ”
