The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has withdrawn the result of one Attama Lawrence Ikedichukwu for acts bordering on impersonation in the just-concluded 2021/2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
According to reports, Lawrence hired an expert who specializes in writing examination for candidates to assist him.
The arrangement however backfired, when the Board’s post-examination processes discovered that the candidate had been impersonated in the course of the examination.
The Management after due consideration and approval of the recommendations of the investigators, the result of Mr. Attama Lawrence Ikedichukwu, whose examination was taken on his behalf at the University of Nigeria, MTN Library, Nsukka, Enugu State, on Tuesday, 22nd June, 2021, during the second session of the examination for that day, has been withdrawn to serve as deterrent to others.
The Board wishes to restate that no result obtained through fraudulent means would be allowed to stand.
adding that the perpetrator(s) will be handed over to relevant agencies for prosecution.
The Board also is putting the general public on notice that as the exercise continues any candidate found culpable will equally suffer the same fate.
