Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB), says it will clampdown on cybercafés and tutorial centers that defraud unsuspecting candidates during registration for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

It noted with dismay, the unwholesome activities of fraudulent operators of cybercafés, tutorial centers and other entities which had formed the habit of deceiving hapless candidates by using the JAMB logo and name to defraud them.

“The stock-in-trade of these unscrupulous elements is to lure innocent candidates to part with their money under the guise of registering them for the 2021 to 2022 UTME/DE application documents.

It is a criminal offence for one to use the board’s name and logo when one is not licensed by the board to do so for any reason.

Anybody not licensed by the board to register candidates and who goes ahead to print banners advertising the board’s services would be arrested and prosecuted.’’

The warning is contained in its weekly news bulletin – Vol. 2, No 18, circulated on Thursday in Abuja. JAMB said henceforth, security agencies would comb the streets across the country to ensure that such illegal activities were curtailed.

The Board had said that registration will take place in 700 centers nationwide, and the list of the centers would be available in all state offices and on JAMB’S website. It also stated that registration for the exercise will begin on April 8 and end on May 15.

“All potential candidates must have the National Identity Number (NIN) for the registration’’.

JAMB stated that the registration fee for the 2021 to 2022 application documents remained N3, 500 and N500 for the recommended “Reading Text’’, while centers must not charge for service above N700, and there would be no extension of time for the sale of the application documents.
