JAMB Warns Against Price Hike, Arrests Four, Suspends Reg In 243 Centres

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has arrested four agents for selling ePINS for the ongoing 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME)/Direct Entry (DE) registrations above the stipulated amount.

They are Abdulrazak Adiza, Mathew Joe, Obekee Godday and Inyang Patrick.

The board also warned that any outlet caught selling the ePINS higher than the prescribed amount would be sanctioned immediately.

The spokesperson of the board, Fabian Benjamin, in a statement said the arrested vendors have been suspended from further participation in the sale of ePINs for the 2020 UTME officially sold for N3,500 and the reading text of N500.

The statement reads: “It has come to the knowledge of the Board that agents of certain registered sale outlets are vending the JAMB Registration ePINs at a cost higher than the prescribed fee.

“On Wednesday, January 15, 2020, one Amodu Friday was apprehended vending the ePINs above the regulated fee.”

“Investigations also revealed that he was actually issuing receipts covering the regulated fee but collecting higher. This is a clear instance of criminality.”
