JAMB Arrests 25 Persons For ‘Illegal’ Sale Of UTME Forms Nationwide


The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has arrested 25 persons for engaging in illegal registration of candidates and sale of 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) forms in the country.

Speaking on the matter, JAMB registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede said those that were arrested were selling registration materials to the candidates preparing for the 2017 UTME.

Oloyede said the suspects were arrested by a combined team of Anti-Corruption and Transparency Unit (ACTU); members of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and the Nigeria Police Force.

The JAMB boss further added that the e-Brochure and e-Syllabus, which were meant to be free, were being sold by the culprits as high as N800 each nationwide.

He said: “Our quality assurance unit, particularly the Anti-Corruption and Transparency Unit had to go out to see what was happening, following reports of extortion.

“We were having reports that candidates are paying more than the N5,500 that is required.,”


“Some of them inflated the prices of registration and application documents, so we had to arrest them to show Nigerians that those items were not supposed to be sold.

“The arrests were carried out across the country yesterday April 1, and we have handed them over to the Nigerian Police for prosecution.”


Candidates seeking to register for the forthcoming UTME were urged to go about their registration in line with due processes to avoid hitches associated with irregularities.

He said JAMB would stick to its month-end deadline for registration for this year’s examination.

Oloyede further dismissed complaints about poor internet connectivity, adding that many of the business centres who wanted JAMB to return to the old practice or producers of scratch cards are behind the complaints.
