According to the board’s registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyode, the boy was among the 11 candidates who allegedly forged their results
The candidate, Chinedu John issued a statement saying, “The result I have been receiving is not the result I am entitled to. I wrote the first JAMB in 2019
“The first time, they sent 328 and later, I saw 278 when I checked it. I printed it. I couldn’t meet up for admission that year. I wanted to study Medicine and Surgery at the University of Ibadan.
“In 2020, the same thing happened. I scored 343, but by the time I went to the portal to print, I saw 306. I used the 306 and it gave me admission in UI. But because I didn’t have Further Mathematics, I had to forfeit it.
“I decided to leave Medicine and Surgery for them in 2021 so I picked Petroleum Engineering. In 2021, JAMB issued me two results. I saw 380 the first time I checked and then the second time, I saw 265.”
The board’s Public Relations Officer, Fabian Benjamin, claimed that the candidate confessed to the crime.
