In Abuja: JAMB nabs 19-year-old for falsifying UTME score

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has handed over a 19-year-old female candidate, Rejoice Mordi, to the police in Abuja, for allegedly falsifying her 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination score from 164 to 264.

The candidate confessed to JAMB officials that she got the fake UTME result from an agent, identified only as Iyanuoluwa via WhatsApp.

Our correspondent learnt that Mordi was arrested at JAMB headquarters, Bwari, Abuja, on Tuesday, when she went in company with her father to lodge a complaint that JAMB gave her two result slips.

Officials of the board said on Sunday that the candidate, who hails from Delta State, alleged that she met the agent who collected her registration number and those of three other candidates.
The agent later sent a fake UTME result to Mordi’s mobile telephone.

The board confirmed that it had handed over the candidate to the police for further investigations and prosecution.

Speaking about the incident in its bulletin on Sunday, JAMB said, “The 19-year-old who falsified her 2019 UTME result from 164 to 264 had petitioned us for (allegedly) giving her two results in the 2019 UTME. The board, upon receipt of the complaint, invited the candidate who appeared before the board in company of her father, Frank Emordi.

The candidate’s father appealed to the registrar, saying, “I talked to her (Rejoice) and she said a guy she met at the centre collected her registration number and three of her friends.(Punch)
