This maybe the reason why some 2020 Unified tertiary student will miss out of the 2020 JAMB test as
Thousands of registered candidates across 38 centres in 11 states of the federation may be denied the opportunity to participate in this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, an official has said.
This is because some of the Computer Based Test centres’ operators defaulted by disobeying the rules governing the registration of candidates as provided by JAMB.
The affected states are Akwa-Ibom, Anambra, Bayelsa, Delta, Katsina, Kwara, Lagos, Nassarawa, Ondo, Oyo, Rivers.
The JAMB registrar, Ishaq Oloyede, who disclosed this at the examination body’s headquarters in Abuja, also “handed over” the 38 operators to the police for further investigation.
According to the registrar, “the operators illegally moved their registration facilities outside their allocated locations”.
The registrar explained that Virtual Private Network(VPN) access is issued to each registered CBT centre “but the board gathered that some of the approved centres went ahead to grant third-party access to cyber-cafés and business centres operators against the board’s directive.”
During the ‘interrogation’ done by the registrar, Phillip Agene from A-pagen Consolidated Limited in Port Harcourt confessed he registered his staff under a fictitious name and National Identity Number in order for him to monitor the activities of his employees.
Also, Mustapha Shehu, from Dialogue Computer Centre, Katsina State said there was a robbery case in his office on January 19.
”Maybe the people who robbed my office did it, we have reported the case to the police,” he said.
The JAMB registrar said an investigation should be conducted to ascertain when the infractions occurred and compare it with the date the robbery took place.
JAMB may shift ground
Following the alleged crime committed by the centres, there are strong indications that the examination body may reconsider its stance on the exclusion of the candidates from the examination.
Responding to questions from journalists on the presumed innocence of the likely affected candidates, the registrar said the board will look in the matter.
“We will look into the matter but they should not register again because they will cause a problem for themselves,” he said.
He, however, insisted that some of the candidates had intentionally registered in the affected centre.
”An average Nigeria parent does not want their wards to queue not knowing the damage they are causing. We have the list of accredited centres in our state offices and on the internet too,” he said.
He warned parents and candidates that are yet to register to desist from patronising fraudulent centres.
The 2020 UTME registration commenced on January 13 and will end on February 17, 2020.
The mock registration, which started on January 13 will end on February 1, 2020. According to JAMB, 704,395 candidates registered for the examination as at January 27.

Former unilag lecturer sentence to 21 years imprisonment for rapping admission seeker
According to Justice Josephine Oyefeso of an Ikeja High Court has reportedly sentenced a former University of Lagos UNILAG part time lecture with the identity Akin Baruwa, to 21 years imprisonment for rapping admission seekers.
News also gathererd that the married man and father of twe was arraigned before the court by the police after the victim, a daughter of his friend, filed a report. The prosecution told the court that Baruwa raped the girl on July 23, 2015, in Room 8 at the Faculty of Business Administration, Annex building, UNILAG when she came to seek admission into the institution.
Also again, While delivering judgement in the one count of rape filed against him, the presiding judge, Justice Oyefeso, said the prosecution proved its case beyond reasonable doubt.
“The offence committed against this young lady was a violation of her chastity which would have left huge emotional scars from which I pray and hope she will recover. I cannot begin to imagine the physical and mental trauma she has had to endure from the man who she considered her father’s friend, a community leader who should have known better. This is a shame.
This is a crime that not only offends the survivor, it offends her family, it offends the society at large, it also offends God. I find you Baruwa Afeez Akin guilty of a one-count charge of rape contrary to Section 258(1) of the Criminal Law of Lagos, 2011, and I hereby convict you accordingly.
In line with Section 258 of the Criminal Law of Lagos, 2011, Baruwa Afeez Akin is hereby sentenced to 21 years’ imprisonment.” she ruled

JAMB shuts down 38 computer centers in Adamawa, Enugu
Joint Admission Matriculation Board Jamb has reported shut down 38 computer centers where candidate suppose to write
Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination ought to register.
The affected centres are in Akwa Ibom, Anambra, Bayelsa, Delta, Katsina, Kwara, Lagos, Nasarawa, Ondo, Oyo and Rivers.
Three centres in Adamawa, Delta and Enugu were also asked by JAMB to suspend the registration process over allegation of extortion of candidates either directly or by proxy.
Four other CBT centres in Gombe, Niger, Osun, and Zamfara were directed to stop registration for technical deficiency during third party examination.
Some suspects were handed over to security agencies at the JAMB headquarters in Bwari, Abuja, on Wednesday.
The board had invited the Computer-Based Test centre operators to a meeting from where they were cornered and handed over to the police.
JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede said that the board, in its continuous effort to fight examination malpractice had decided to focus more on CBT centres and the infractions they committed.
Oloyede explained that the crimes included submission of fictitious names and fake National Identity numbers by the centre owners.
He also said that some of the CBT owners extended the Virtual Private Network on their computers to undesignated locations.
He said, “As far as I am concerned, a prima facie case has been established against all involved and they will go and give their statements to the police.
“Our present technology enables us to track all registration officers, either ad hoc or permanent JAMB staff through the National Identification Numbers.
“All designated computers used for the registration have also been duly registered by the board which enables tracking and has successfully led us to crimes committed by some of the centres.”
