Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board , JAMB, says it has wielded the big stick on one hundred and thirty three Centres where it was discovered that candidates for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations engaged in malpractices.
Head of JAMB, Professor Ishaq Oloyede said this when he met with operators of Computer-Based Test Centres and others in Zaria, Kaduna state yesterday.
Oloyede said it was also discovered that operators of the affected centres do tamper with the Close Circuit Television cameras mounted to monitor activities during examinations.
The JAMB registrar said the examination body was making efforts to combat this challenge as it was collaborating with the Computer Professional Council of Nigeria ahead of future examinations.
He warned that the organisation would not hesitate to prosecute any operator found to have aided candidates in such a manner even though he admitted that ending malpractices is a difficult task.
