The Registrar , Joint Admissions and Matriculation
Board , Prof . Is – haq Oloyede , has revealed how some
Computer – Based Test centres gave bribes to some JAMB
officials to help them to falsify the 2017 Unified Tertiary
Matriculation Examination results .
Oloyede , who disclosed this at a briefing , said some of
the JAMB officials collected the bribes for “ security
reasons” . The registrar , who did not disclose the CBT
centres because of ongoing investigation , noted that the
officials reported to the board .
He decried the connivance of some parents with CBT
centres for examination malpractices , adding that some
parents paid as much as N200 , 000 for exam fraud.
He said , “ An area which I want to address is the intensity
of examination malpractices and the connivance of parents
. There are malpractices , which are concealed in flip flops
and handkerchiefs, by candidates. Some owners of the
CBT centres also set them up for reasons other than
“ They sold answers . We also paid the money . Some
centres also extended cables into fraudulent places they
called VIP rooms, but we caught them. There were also
cases of some CBT centres bribing our officials. Our
officials had to collect the bribes in some instances, when
they considered their safety. They then turned in the money
to us when they reported back . ”
Oloyede added that one of JAMB ’ s directors , whose
name could not yet be ascertained , went to a CBT centre ,
which had a VIP section where malpractice was going on .
According to him , the director laughed and commended
them, because it was not safe for him to raise any alarm at
