Fake exam e-cards scheme hits Lagos

15 January 2014, 18:05Henry Ifeanyi

Lagos - The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has alerted students on a fake electronic access cards scheme currently in circulation in Lagos.

The board said it had come to its attention that some individuals were selling fake cards for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to unsuspecting students.

“I want to seize this opportunity to sensitize the public of this ugly development. Some candidates have reported the purchase of fake electronic cards to the JAMB National Headquarters Annex at No. 11, Ojora Road, Ikoyi, Lagos,” Kamaldeen Oladeji, Coordinator of the Board, said in Lagos.

He said candidates reported they bought the fake e-facility cards from vendors at the Lagos State University (LASU) and around Ikotun and Sango-Ota.

Oladeji said the victims complained that the counterfeit e-facility cards were being sold at a price higher than the quoted purchase price of N1 000.

While cautioning students to buy the electronic access card from only duly authorized, he warned that the board would arrest and prosecute those behind the sales of the fake cards.

Oladeji added that the e-facility card was only available for sale to the public at the board’s offices nationwide.
