The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has on Wednesday withdrawn the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination results of four candidates. 


A statement released by JAMB’s Head of Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, on June 26th, said 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.

Benjamin 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 the 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.
