UTME Candidate Arrested For Paying For ‘Score Upgrade’

The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps have arrested a UTME candidate, Cletus Kokowa.

The candidate allegedly hired a syndicate to upgrade his scores from 162 to 206.

They arrested him on Thursday at the JAMB headquarters in Bwari, Abuja, where he confessed that they asked him to pay N10,000 for the upgrade.

Kokowa explained that he contacted the syndicate through a WhatsApp group a few weeks ago after he learned that they could upgrade his score from 162.

The syndicate later sent a fake result notification to Kokowa, stating that his score was now 206. When his UTME result however remained unchanged on the JAMB portal, Kokowa’s father, Garen, wrote a letter of complaint to the board asking for the rectification of his son’s scores.

The board thereafter invited Kokowa to come with the two results as proof, after which he confessed on Thursday to have employed a syndicate.
