According to the bulletin, these professional examination writers connived with some Computer Based Centre (BT) owners to perpetrate the crime by engaging in multiple registrations where by the finger prints of the actual candidates and their impersonators are captured side by side.

“The modus operandi of these UTME syndicates was confirmed when one of the kingpins was apprehended recently.

“On interrogation, he confessed to the multiple registration of his biometrics alongside other several potential candidates preparing to sit for the examination, in exchange for a huge sum of money.

“This development led to the decision of the board to revalidate all biometrics of candidates that have taken the board’s examination in recent times.

“This timely action will enable the board to not only fish out and dismantle this registration cartels and racketeers, but also bring them to book along with their collaborators,” it said.

The bulletin added that another startling discovery by the board was the fact that a substantial portion of the UTME application documents, was composed of the bogus registration.

It noted that the unwholesome application had the singular effect of inflating the total statistical data of candidates’ registration that amounted to over 30 per cent of the 1.8 million that registered for the UTME.

“The board in a bid to live up to its billings, has therefore resolved to set machinery in motion to effect the arrest and prosecution of all those involved in the unwholesome act, capable of subverting the sanctity of the entire examination process,” NAN reports.
