JAMB Arrests over 50 impersonators

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board on Monday said it has uncovered and arrested over 50 ‘Professional Examination Writers’ who specialized in writing examination for candidates for a fee.

The board’s weekly official bulletin, tagged: ‘JAMBULLETIN’, signed by JAMB’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin disclosed this in Lagos State.

It was noted that some of the suspects were Master’s Degree holders and undergraduates of tertiary institutions in the country.

According to the bulletin, these professional examination writers connived some Computer Based Centre owners to perpetuate the crime by engaging in multiple registrations whereby the fingerprints of the actual candidates and their impersonators are captured side by side.
