The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has warned operators of cybercafes, tutorial centres and other entities against the use of its logo.
A statement by the Head Public Affairs and Protocols of JAMB Dr Fabian Benjamin says fraudulent operators of cybercafes, tutorial centres and other entities have formed the habit of deceiving helpless candidates through using the Board’s logo and name to defraud and extort them.
The statement explains that its Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede gave the warning “in Ilorin, Kwara State, while handing over some operators of cybercafes, tutorial centres and other such operators to security agents.
The Registrar, during the engagement, warned that the Board would no longer tolerate the antics of such platforms, which, he said, are used as incubators for grooming examination infractions who use the name and logo of the Board to lend credence to their unwholesome activities.
According to him, anybody not licensed by the Board to register candidates and who goes ahead to print banners advertising the Board’s services would be arrested and prosecuted.
The Registrar further disclosed that, henceforth, the Board and the various security agencies would be combing the streets across the country to ensure that the untoward activities of fraudulent elements are curtailed.
