Mr Phillip Ayuba, Corps Commandant in the state made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Minna on Tuesday.
He said the security would be in the 17 computer – based centres for the 11th conduct of the UTME in Niger, which kicked off on Tuesday.
Ayuba said that two personnel would provide security in each of the centres, while five personnel from the headquarters would supervise the exercise across the state.
