The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has uncovered 34 prospective candidates who conspired with Computer Based Test Centers for the purpose of exam malpractice.
One of those arrested includes a level 5 Law student of the Bayero University, BUK, Kano, who was said to have thumb printed for 14 prospective candidates who plan to sit for the examination.
Another candidate at the same centre was also caught thumb-printing for 14 students while a third suspect, who was arrested personally by the JAMB Register, Professor Ishaq Oloyede registered for six students.
Professor Ishaq Oloyede who was in Kano to monitor the UTME Registration exercise and supervised about six JAMB centres noted that he would ensure that those arrested are prosecuted because malpractice begins at the point of registration.
Oloyede informed that the 34 students found conniving with the suspects would not be allowed to sit for the examination this year and if they do by any means their papers would be cancelled.
