The Computer-Based Test Centers Proprietors Association of Nigeria (CPAN) has raised alarm over the existence of illegal centres currently selling fake 2017 JAMB registration forms in Imo state.
Chidiebere Egboh, chairman of the association, told journalists in Owerri on Monday that the fraudsters were collecting money to place candidates in “special centres”, to cheat during the examination for entry into tertiary institutions.
He described the development as “dangerous” and alerted prospective candidates that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board was yet to announce the fees and date for the commencement of registration.
“The fraudsters play fast one and extort N15, 000 and above from thousands of unsuspecting prospective JAMB candidates,” he said.
“The consequences are that the fraudsters will elope with candidates’ money and they will not have genuine centres to write the examination.
“The issue of ‘special centres’ had been clamped down. We must emphasise that there will be nothing like ‘special centre’ any longer.”
“CPAN has vowed to provide grounds for equal opportunity to all genuine candidates to gain admission into tertiary institutions of their choice,” he said.
