The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has withdrawn the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results of four candidates.

The candidates include: Adah Eche with Registration Number: 97512230IB, Taiwo Abisola Omowumi with Registration Number: 97049254GG, Vincent Onyinyechi Prisca with Registration Number: 96531098BC, and Sofodun Afolasade Zainab with Registration Number: 96634599GA.

JAMB’s Head of Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday, in Abuja.

He said the four candidates were found by the Board to have been involved in an attempt to fake JAMB result.

“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 patronizes such candidates would also face similar consequence,” the statement said.

Eche was apprehended on Monday by the board for being in possession of a fake UTME result.

He had attempted to upgrade his original UTME score of 153 to 290 with the help of a professional examination fraudster.

According to JAMB, apart from being in possession of a fake UTME result, he was also working with the above name candidates to have their scores inflated as well .

Meanwhile, the board said it has released the results of 3, 736 who have been cleared of any infraction.

According to Benjamin, the candidates whose results have been released are those who were invited and appeared at eight centres listed by the board.

He said that after an interaction with the board’s Intelligence Committee to ascertain their culpability or otherwise in some discovered examination infraction, their results were released.

“Consequently, 3,736 candidates who were found to be either free of any blame or entitled to the benefit of the doubt, have their results processed for release. The 3, 736 results are now released,” the statement added. (The Nation)
