Three Arrested For Falsification Of JAMB Results

The Nigeria Police Force has detained three men for creating fraudulent JAMB registration websites, forging phoney JAMB Admission Letters, interfering with systems, and operating phishing websites to scam unsuspecting JAMB candidates.

The police spokesperson, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, confirmed the suspects’ arrest to reporters. The suspects, who are male and ages 34, 38, and 38 respectively, as well as others at large, are members of a syndicate that planned and conspired to obtain services among themselves to gain unauthorised access to the JAMB-restricted Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) and e-facility, respectively.

They then altered and deleted previous admission letters of other candidates and entered fictitious details to create fake admission letters that were used as real ones to gain admission to postsecondary institutions and mobilisation for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme.

‘’Upon arrest the suspects revealed their various degrees of involvement in the conspiracy, corroborating the already available overwhelming evidence. The duo of Effa Leonard Mpama and Ibang Ernest Jerome and others at large collect personal details of the prospective candidates and forward same to Mr. Eshiet Odotukana Benson who gets CAPS links from Daniel and Chris; Messrs. Daniel and Chris still at large are working in the JAMB Computer Based Test (CBT) Centers domiciled in FAN and UNICAL respectively in Calabar, Cross River State.”

“In more developments, digital Forensic analysis led to the recovery of 4 fake domains, websites and 2 principal threat actors of a syndicate in Imọ State behind the creation of the fake domains and other associated websites operated by them. Similarly, the third suspect, Mr Eshiet, who has access to the CAPS links unlike the duo above, proceeds to any CBT centre and opens the jamb e-facility with a login detail of a candidate with previous admission and thereafter superimposes the new details collected to create a fake admission letter,” Adejobi said.

He noted that the offences are contradictory to sections 8, 13, and 27 of the Cybercrimes Act, 2015, as amended.

A Gentle Reminder: Every obstacle is a stepping stone, every morning; a chance to go again, and those little steps take you closer to your dream.
