The Nigeria Police at the weekend arrested two men said to be owners of a Computer-Based Test centre, Vision Computer Academy, located in Ibeju Lekki area of Lagos for engaging in illegal registration of candidates for the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
It was learnt that the suspects identified as Mr. Bamigbade Ajibola and Amoo Moshood were arrested on Saturday night by men of the Nigerian Police from Adeniji Adele Police Station, Lagos Island.
The police said their arrest was made possible after a tip-off from members of the public that Lagos Island Primary School, Sura, was being used for the illegal registration exercise.
Commenting on the development, the Coordinator of the Lagos Office of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Mr. Sunday Aladegbaye said the accused, whose CBT centre was legally accredited for the exercise, had moved its router and computer systems to an illegal location to engage in fraudulent practices and extortion of candidates.
Both Ajibola and Moshood were detained at the police station according to Aladegbayi, saying they would be charged to court today.
The JAMB coordinator warned that the examination body is determined to fish out the bad eggs who may be working towards thwarting its efforts at standardising the conduct of examination and admission processes in the country.
