JAMB asks UNIBEN to probe UTME registration fraud

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has called on the authorities of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) to probe a fraud allegation that led to the suspension of its Computer Based Test (CBT) centre from handling the registration of candidates for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) recently.

In a statement signed by its Head of Public Affairs, Dr Fabian Benjamin, JAMB said contrary to claim by the university, the board didn’t act with haste in suspending the centre rather; the decision was informed by evidence.

It said, the JAMB Registrar, Professor Is-haq Oloyede, “being a former Vice-Chancellor was shocked and more disturbed with evidences of the extortion of candidates by the university CBT centre.

“The board therefore asks the university to do a thorough investigation to identify the bad eggs in the shameful episode before further development.”
