Five candidates who sat for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) are being prosecuted by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) for allegedly altering their scores.
The five candidates were apprehended between June and September by JAMB and handed over to the police.
Dr. Fabian Benjamin, Head of the examination board, confirmed the prosecution of the five candidates on Monday in an interview with pressmen.
According to findings made available to schoolworld, the five candidates include Adah Eche, Cletus Kokowa, Kingsley Unekwe and Rejoice Mordi.
“Some of them have appeared in court, and most of them have been arraigned. Others are on bail. But there is no conviction yet.
“Admission for the 2019/2020 session has started and certainly we have a number but I don’t have it now. It is still very insignificant,” Benjamin stated.
