OVERVIEW OF: JAMB Budgets N100m To Prosecute 200 Exam Cheats
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has vowed to prosecute no fewer than two hundred prospective students who were caught in examination malpractice in the 2020 Computer-Based Tests.
The examination board made this known on Tuesday during a press conference chaired by Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, Registrar/Chief Executive of JAMB.
The exam body lamented that merchants of malpractices which used to be in the South part of the nation have now crept into the North.
Speaking on the development, Prof. Oloyede said the board would expend about N100m on the prosecution of 200 of the over 400 persons involved in impersonation in the 2020 UTME.
He revealed that the first 64 cases of CBT infractions treated by JAMB were from the North, accusing tertiary institutions of being accomplices in the widespread irregularities.
