Abuja – The Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has apprehended one of the candidates who took part in the conclude examination whose name is Adah Eche for allegedly upgrading his scores in the recent Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination from 153
2019 Jamb candidate cut for upgrading Jamb Result- Fraudster: The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Registrar Prof.Is-Haq Oloyede while addressing the press said:
“We decided to pick three out of the complainants to address their issues and he happened to be the first person we picked and he actually wrote a letter of complaint to us knowing full well that he faked his result.”
What we did was invite him to come and pick his admission letter and he came.”
“Now, what such people do not know is that we have a barcode for every result which helps us verify its authenticity, but this fake one has the barcode of a supermarket and was saying invalid barcode on our own platform.”
“We have checked our own platform and seen where he has checked his result three consecutive times via 55019 and was replied same with his original result which is 153, yet he insists that he did not know the one with 290 was fake”
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…”.
Adah Eche who fell for the trick quickly contacted the numbers and requested that his scores be upgraded from the original 153 to 200 but they later settled for 290.
After transferring some monies to the fraudsters, he then wrote a letter to the JAMB authority informing them that they made a mistake in his scores earlier released and that his main scores was 290.
He also furnished the JAMB office with copies of the forged results, which upon investigation was found to be fake.
The development then compelled the Register and Chief Executive of JAMB to invite the candidate to come for his admission letter at the headquarters where he was apprehended and paraded before newsmen.
It was also alleged that the candidate’s senior secondary school results were also fake as he could hardly communicate in simple sentences during interrogation.
Apart from engaging the services of those that helped him in forging the scores, he was also encouraging other candidates who scored below the cut off marks to upgrade theirs as well in order for them to gain admission.
Details of the transaction and communication with other unsuspecting candidates who were interested in the act were found in his cell phone.
Recall that the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination was marred by malpractices, inspite of measures adopted by JAMB to forestall such practices.
In some instances, a single candidate registered for the examination 64 times, a development that led to delays in releasing the results earlier
