The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced its determination to arrest the individual responsible for creating an application that enables the generation of fake Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results.

JAMB spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin, revealed during a Facebook Live interview with The Punch on Wednesday, July 5, that the examination body has identified the undergraduate developer of the controversial software and is actively pursuing his arrest.

Benjamin disclosed that the app, which has been circulating on platforms like Google Play Store, has the capability to produce fraudulent UTME results.

JAMB, committed to combating examination malpractice following the recent case involving Miss Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma, expressed its resolve to bring the app creator into the custody of law enforcement agencies.

The undisclosed student responsible for the application will also face severe consequences, including the revocation of his admission status at his institution.

When pressed for further details regarding the ongoing investigation, Benjamin chose to withhold additional information, stating that more updates will be provided in due course.

The revelation of the app's existence has sparked public outrage, with Nigerians on social media expressing their concerns over the potential misuse of such technology to manipulate exam scores.

The application in question, known as "JAMB-Funfake," was discovered on both the Apple Store and Google Play Store. Its availability raised suspicions among users, who questioned its legitimacy and raised alarm over the implications of its use.

JAMB, in response to allegations of result forgery involving Ejikeme Mmesoma, reiterated that the scores presented by several UTME candidates were fraudulent. 

The agency clarified that these individuals had not only misrepresented their actual scores but had also employed deceitful software to manipulate their results, deceiving unsuspecting members of the public.

In the specific case of Mmesoma, JAMB accused her of inflating her 2023 UTME score through fraudulent means. The examination board emphasized that the candidate's public claims regarding her results were misleading and lacked truthfulness.

JAMB's relentless pursuit of the app developer reflects its commitment to maintaining the integrity of the UTME examination process.

By taking swift action against those involved in examination malpractice, JAMB aims to ensure that candidates are evaluated fairly and accurately, thereby upholding the credibility of the country's tertiary education system. Share on social media using the buttons below!
