A Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination applicant, Cletus Kokowa, has again been arrested by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board for upgrading his Jamb score from 162 to 206 with the assistance of a scam artist.
Kokowa is now the second applicant arrested by the commission after Adah Eche, who was tracked down for comparable offense last month.
Kokowa admitted to being made to pay N10,000 for the upgrade before JAMB committee on Thursday.
The committee informed journalists that a couple of weeks earlier the applicant with Registration Number 95329290ED approached the fraudsters through a Whatsapp group in which they informed him they could upgrade his score
It clarified that scammers subsequently sent Kokowa a false outcome screen capture saying that his result was 206 now.
Nevertheless, when the outcome stayed unaffected on the JAMB page, Kokowa’s dad, Garen Kokowa, submitted a complaint letter to the board requesting that his son’s results be corrected.
The father of the Jambite had told JAMB Officials that:
“Your inability for swift response to address the issue has led to my son’s forfeiture of his Nigerian Defence Academy admission opportunity.
“However, I am craving for your indulgence to quickly rectify the result in affirmative to enable him have a good stand for his second choice of institution.”
After this, they invited Kokowa to their office to present proof of his results which he later disclosed that some scam artists had helped him.
