Posted by E.L.E.X on April 12 2019 under News

A  man who claimed to be a professor, Jide Jisus, was on Thursday arrested for alleged examination malpractice as the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) for this year began across Nigeria.

According to a statement by the spokesperson of JAMB, Fabian Benjamin, Mr. Jisus was apprehended by the monitoring team of the registrar of JAMB in an examination hall at Brix Academy, Jabi, Abuja.

“His identity was shrouded in dubious tales. He claimed during interrogation that he was one of the professors selected by the Board to oversee the conduct of the 2019 UTME. He also claimed that he was awarded a professorial position by Christian University, Isolo, Lagos and that he had two professorial awards from “Becket” University England and Freedom University.

He similarly claimed to be a staff of Anchor Polytechnic, Kubwa, Abuja, an institution that does not exist. According to him, he said he is the president of the United Nigeria Chaplin Institute of Peace Academy. “However, it was discovered that he had a daughter who was taking the 2019 UTME in the same center where he was caught.”

The Board’s operational guideline does not allow unauthorized persons into the examination hall. “The Professor was, therefore, not one of those selected by the Board to monitor the conduct of the 2019 UTME,” the statement said.

Some other hitches observed on Thursday had to do with the verification of the biometrics of candidates and ban of writing materials from the examination centers.

According to the process of the examination, candidates are supposed to do their biometric verification before and after the examination.
