The Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) results.

The Registrar of the board, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, made the announcement in Abuja on Saturday, told journalists that about 15,145 results were withheld for further clarification, While 34,120 candidates had their results withheld for examination malpractice. Recall that About 1,792,719 candidates sat for the exams in April

In other reports, the board had said it was screening the UTME results for malpractices, saying 123 suspects had been arrested and were standing trial nationwide.

While parading Musa, a JAMB worker attached to the Information Technology Service, the registrar said, “He collected N25,000 for admission. So, we are not hiding anything. Even internally, we are doing scrutiny. Anybody caught will be dealt with according to the law.

Speaking with newsmen, Musa confessed to the crime, adding that he had refunded N10,000 to the admission seeker when the admission did not come through.

He said, “The person came to me for admission and I told him that I knew people who would help. I collected N25,000 from him. But it did not work. So I refunded N10,000. He was the one who reported to the registrar. The person I contacted to assist the admission seeker said they had already closed the admission.

“I apologise and I want JAMB to temper justice with mercy. This is the first candidate I collected money from.”

One Bakare Damilola, who paid Musa N25,000, said trouble started when the admission did not come through and the JAMB worker refused to refund the money.

He said, “I am not the one seeking admission. I was sent by the father of the candidate involved. I came and explained everything to this man (Musa). I wrote the candidate’s registration number down and he asked me to wait outside. Later, he told me it would involve money.

“The father of the girl, Mr Olaoye, who is based in Lagos State, sent the money to Musa’s account and I have the teller. Mr Olaoye was desperate for the admission of his daughter because she had stayed home for eight years. Eventually, the admission did not come through. We asked Musa to refund the money. He kept postponing and I reported him to the registrar.”
