The Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has apprehended a suspect for alleged upgrade his scores in the recent Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination from 153 to 290. The 19-year-old, Adah Eche was a candidate in the 2019 UTME and was alleged to have engaged the services of some cunning men through Facebook and WhatsApp platforms, having come across an advertisement which read, “Do you want to upgrade your 2019 JAMB results? He also furnished the JAMB office with copies of the forged results, which upon investigation was found to be fake. Recall that the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination was marred by malpractices, in spite of measures adopted by JAMB to forestall such practices. In some instances, a single candidate registered for the examination a record 64 times, a development that led to delays in releasing the results earlier.
