To stem the rising cases of examinations malpractice in the country, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board JAMB is seeking to partner the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC to fight the menace.
JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, while playing host to the chairman of the EFCC Ibrahim Magu in his office in Abuja said already the Board has in its custody some people who broke into its Virtual Private Network. According to the registrar, they are creating very-small-aperture terminal in Osogbo and Ilesha, Osun State, and broadcasting across the country.
“A total of 1,451,691 candidates had registered for the 2018 UTME, while 39,663 candidates were for the Direct Entry.
“However, we currently have in our custody some people who break into our Virtual Private Network. They are creating very-small-aperture terminal in Osogbo and Ilesha, Osun State, and broadcasting across the country.
“These people are young boys and girls. They are only concerned about the money they get and not about the effects of their corrupt practices.
“We would cooperate with the EFCC in fighting corruption in the form of examination malpractices,” he said.
In his remarks, Magu said the reason for the visit was to cooperate with JAMB to fight corruption in many areas including the issue of examination malpractices.
