JAMB Hands over 38 CBT Centres to Law Enforcement Agencies for UTME/DE Registration Fraud

Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has handed over 38 operators of various Computer Based Test (CBT) centres drawn from the six geopolitical zones to law enforcement officers for alleged cybercrime using the Virtual Private Network (VPN).


The operators were accused of extending the VPN to illegal outposts to register some candidates for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and those seeking admission through Direct Entry (DE).


This implies that the fate of all 2020 UTME/DE candidates who knowingly or ignorantly registered at the illegal registration centres is presently unknown as there’s no clear indication if they would be allowed to sit for this year’s examinations or other arrangements would be put in place to capture them.
