JAMB to arrest parents found at CBT centres during UTME

JAMB

Security operatives have been directed to work with Computer Based Test Centre owners to arrest meddlesome parents who come near their facilities during the 2024 UTME exercise.

JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede made the announcement during a briefing with CBT owners. He said the directive became necessary following the intrusive disposition of some parents during its previous exercises.

Oloyede said parents who disobey the order would not only be arrested but have their ward disqualified from sitting the examination. He added; “This measure is necessary as it has been discovered over time that many of these intruding parents are facilitators of examination infractions while others have, by their actions, disrupted the Board’s examinations in the past. Some miscreants also disguise themselves as parents to infiltrate the centres to perpetrate all forms of infractions.

“Therefore, it is evident that these parents had not allowed their wards to pass through the classes as defined in the document, hence, the determination to follow their wards to the examination venue with the aim of compromising examination officials.

“At any rate, it is clear to any discerning observer that these parents deserve to be sanctioned as they had obviously ‘smuggled’ underage children into the ranks of those scheduled to sit the examination.

“This advice is issued against the backdrop of some candidates, who might be enticed into patronising any of those fraudulent websites out there. Consequently, the Board informed candidates that if their personal details are found with any of such sites, they would be treated as accomplices and prosecuted.”
