 No fewer than 15 persons are presently serving different jail terms, after being convicted for involvement in examination infractions during this year’s Unified Tertiary Metrication Examinations (UTME).

Speaking with New Telegraph, the spokesperson for the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Dr. Fabian Benjamin, said those convicted were serving between three months and two years jail terms, depending on the level of infractions committed.

He added that some of the convicts were in Zamfara, Kebbi and Sokoto states.

“Basically, what most of them have done we have grouped it under what we call infractions. It covers all the areas of malpractices; some of them were involved in multiple registrations with the intent to perpetrate malpractices, some of them made efforts to compromise our system. But in all of these cases, they have all confessed to their crimes and they have been convicted to various terms of jail,” he said. (New Telegraph)
