Cyber-cafe-operators Arrested By Jamb For Selling information to candidates for #10,000
JAMB (The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board ) revealed yesterday that it had arrested operators of cyber cafés for defrauding candidates of the ongoing Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) for #10, 000 to access information on their e-mails. The Nation reports that JAMB’s Head of Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, said this yesterday May 14 in a statement issued in Abuja.
Dr. Fabian Benjamin said the operators deliberately changed the e-mail addresses and passwords of candidates to ensure that messages sent to the candidates by JAMB get to them (operators of cyber cafes) and in turn sell such information to candidates.
“We also advice candidates not to allow cheats to defraud them as we have arrested cyber cafe operators who changed candidates email addresses and passwords and ensure that all messages send to candidates get to them and in turn sale such information like examination notification for #10,000.
“It’s our humble expectation that a candidate aspiring to be a student in any tertiary institution should be able to operate an email. All information is sent to their email addresses and also on our site for the public use,” he said.
Fabian hailed the organisation for the successful conduct of the UTME, which began on Saturday,13th May, 2017.
He advised candidates to check JAMB’s website as well as its official twitter handle for information concerning the conduct of the examination.
