JAMB COLLABORATES WITH NIGERIA POLICE FORCE TO CURB THE ACTIVITIES OF ONLINE SCAMMERS TARGETED AT CANDIDATES FOR THIS YEAR’S UTME                                                                                                                     13-04-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                                   The joint admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB is collaborating with the Nigeria Police Force to curb the activities of online scammers targeted at candidates for this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME.

At a joint media briefing in Abuja, the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi explained that the fraudsters had created fake websites with the intention of misleading and exploiting candidates.

He said the Inspector General of Police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun had directed the force National Cyber Crime Center to track down the perpetrators and ensure they face the full wrath of the law.

ACP Adejobi called on parents and guardians to ensure that candidates who registered for this year’s UTME, print their Notification Slips only from the Board’s approved website.

“Candidates are advised to print their UTME Notification Slips before Friday, 19th April, 2024, to access vital information about their examinations. Any website other than www.jamb.gov.ng offering UTME slip printing services is fake and designed to defraud candidates. Candidates should also beware of sites offering ‘live’ questions and answers, as they are false and deceptive, and accessing such materials is prohibited. In addition, the Inspector General of Police has ordered the Nigeria Police Force National Cyber Crime Centre to go after scammers and fraudsters who engage in cyber related crimes and create phishing sites/portals, and cause them to face the full wrath of the law”

The Public Relations officer of JAMB, Mr. Fabian Benjamin while condemning the fraudulent activities, warned candidates against patronizing fake websites as anyone found guilty would be disqualified.

“We are urging candidates to note that once you receive any unsolicited message, know that it is fraud. Don’t patronize any fake site. We have raised a team that is visiting some of these sites,once your number is found there to have patronised them, you will be disqualified from partaking in the exercise”

Mr. Benjamin reiterated the commitment of the Board to maintain the integrity of the examination process.

The 2024 UTME is scheduled to commence from 19th to 29th April.
