Fake JAMB registration centre which has collected N1,200 from over 180 students uncovered



A fake JAMB registration centre has been discovered by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Maiduguri Bornu State.

While addressing the issue, Mr. Abdullahi who is the commander for the state said the owner of the fake JAMB registration centre were defrauding students who thought they had successfully applied for JAMB.

According to Mr. Abdullahi, the fake centre was discovered on Thursday at the Kawu Shopping Complex along Lagos Street of the metropolis.

He said that men of the command also arrested one Abizo Precious Idowu, a 31-year-old from Imo who had collected N1,200 each to register about 180 students under the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

“Without any doubt, the command had discovered that the Computer Based Test Centre (CBT) is fake. Even the server is for Abia state.

“His accomplices are on the run but the command is doing all it can to track them.

“We will make sure he refunded all the money he collected from the students while he will be made to face the law.

“We (NSCDC) therefore warned JAMB applicants to be wary of fraudsters disguising as JAMB facilitators,” the commandant said.
