Shocking How JAMB Lost N10m To Fraudsters
The Registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, said the board lost more than N10 million in 2020 to fraudsters.
Oloyede told newsmen at the board’s headquarters on Wednesday in Abuja that the fraudsters penetrated the board’s payment portal for ad-hoc staff.
He said that the money, which was meant to pay JAMB Adhoc staff from the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, was hijacked by the suspected fraudsters.
Oloyede, however, said that the board investigated the illegality, tracked, and finally apprehended 10 of the suspects in Kaduna, Nasarawa, and Abuja.
