John Chinedu, a 19-year-old student who sued the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) for allegedly changing his UTME result has been handed to the police for alleged result manipulation and forgery.
According to BBC News Pidgin, Chinedu through his lawyer Akaiwe Ikeazor sued JAMB for one billion Naira.
He claimed the examination body changed his result for 2019, 2020 and 2021.
However, after reportedly giving Chinedu plenty of opportunities to confess, JAMB registrar Professor Ishaq Oloyede, opened the examination body’s server to prove that the student manipulated the result.
It was gathered that his original UTME score is 265 while he allegedly forged it and changed it to 380.
He was handed to the police for further investigation and possible prosecution.
Results manipulation and forgery is a criminal offence.
