A Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) candidate, Kingsley Unekwe who allegedly increased his score has been apprehended.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Registrar, Prof Is-haq Oloyede disclosed this on Friday.
It was noted that Unekwe who confessed to the crime, increased his score from 201 to 269 so as to deceive his parents who wanted him to study Medicine.
“Anybody who does post-result infraction will have their results withdrawn by the board. You (Unekwe) are the fifth person.
“Two of the other candidates are already being prosecuted because we showed them clearly that they forged their results to deceive their parents who are desperate, like your parents are, to study medicine.
“We will prosecute you for attempting to tarnish the image of the board. We told your father that we have all the facts; since we now see that your claims are not correct, you will be prosecuted,” the Registrar added.
