We didn’t arrest 10,000 for exam malpractice in Enugu – JAMB

by on May 25, 2017
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has raised the alarm over figures being quoted as impostors arrested in Anambra on so­cial media during the JAMB examinations, declaring that only seven persons were ar­rested by security men.
JAMB Coordinator in the state, Mrs Lynda Aja Nwa­chukwu described as mislead­ing, the figures bandied about by mischief makers.
Before now, there had been reports that about 10,000 persons were involved in ex­amination malpractice in An­ambra State during the JAMB exams.
Speaking with journalists yesterday in Awka, the JAMB Coordinator in the state Mrs Lynda Aja Nwachukwu, said the seven suspects were ar­rested by the Nigerian Secu­rity and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).
She, however, said that the examination in the state was a huge success and that plans were on to build on it.
Aja Nwachukwu said that some problems identified like candidates not being able to print at some exami-nation centres would soon be a thing of the past, adding that JAMB was prepared to give the best exami-nation process in the country.
However, some securi­ty personnel misbehaved in some centres during the ex­aminations especially at night, while some students cried out because of malfunctioning of their laptops.
