The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has blacklisted 22 Computer-Based Test centres for allegedly defrauding 11, 823 candidates to the tune of N59million.
Registrar of JAMB, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, said the CBT operators overcharged the candidates by more than N200 as service charge for the centres to effect correction on profile.
They also allegedly bypassed the One-time password required to initiate such changes.
He said any centre that shared the same ownership with the delisted centres would be suspended from all JAMB activities.
Oloyede disclosed this during a meeting with operators of the delisted centres on Thursday in Abuja.
He said the board had concrete proof of the infractions as it made undercover payments to the centres to detect the fraud that was perpetrated by the operators of the centres.
He said the board has reversed the changes done illegally by the affected candidates and that the money paid to JAMB to effect the changes remained intact on their profiles.
A representative of Duntro CBT centre, David Ugochukwu, blamed the illegal act on his technical staff, saying that they had been sacked.
The affected centres include, Bright Stars, Aba, Abia State (68 candidates); Flourish Computer Centre, Akwa Ibom State, 105; Ibom-E-Library, Akwa Ibom, 12; Chukwuemeka Odumegwu University, Igbariam, Anambra State, 661; Deacons Digital Solutions Ltd, 96; Federal Poly, Oko, 314 and Mega Dataview, Onitsha, 733.Follow Us On Social Media
