JAMB’s Head of Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin made this known in a statement yesterday in Abuja.

“The Board therefore withdraws and invalidates the results of the four candidates found to have been involved in the illicit attempt to fake JAMB result.
“No effort would be spared in identifying and sanctioning any candidate who attempts to falsify results of JAMB-organised examinations (UTME and others) and whoever collaborates or patronises such candidates would also face the similar consequence,” the statement said.
Adah Eche The 19- year- old candidate was alleged to have engaged the services of some fraudsters through facebook and Whatsapp platforms, having come across an advertisement which read, “Do you want to upgrade your 2019 JAMB results? Is your scores too poor for admission into any of the universities, then contact the following numbers…”.
