The board stated this in its weekly bulletin released from the of the Registrar on Sunday in Abuja, NAN reports.

The bulletin quoted the Head, Media and Publications, Dr Fabian Benjamin, as saying that candidates with more than one result were either fraudulent or victims of examination syndicates.

According to him, the board has evidence of some candidates who paid money to syndicates to ensure they gained high in the examination.

“The syndicates, realising that they could not deliver as promised, instead, came up with these forged results and sent same to candidates who believed them.

“These are the set of candidates claiming to have two results, that is, with the actual result as one of them.

“It is practically impossible to have two results because we do not send results to candidates, rather, candidates send ‘Results’ to 55019 and the result is subsequently transmitted to the respective candidates.”

Benjamin added that the board has ensured that the UTME results were secured with high security features that would render the efforts of any syndicate or fraudster null.

One of such features, he said was a unique bar code placed on each result to safeguard it.

He, however, warned that candidates must not become gullible and desperate and urged them to be wary of criminal elements who want to defraud them.

Benjamin also said that the board’s renewed resolve to confront examination malpractice headlong was yielding results.

He pointed out that the board was not responsible for deciding a national cutoff mark for admissions into various institutions, adding that the board had not set a cutoff mark for the 2019/20 admission process.

He, however, explained that a national cutoff mark would be decided at the JAMB policy meeting of shareholders and heads of institutions to be chaired by a Ministry of official.

He said the meeting would hold on June 11 at Gbongan, .

JAMB said the candidate, Kingsley Unekwe’s result was canceled because he altered his score.

Addressing reporters on Friday in Abuja, JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede said 18-year-old Unekwe was caught inflating his original UTME score from 201 to 269.

Oloyede said the discovery was made when Unekwe and his mother appeared before some officials of the board in Abuja.

The JAMB Registrar also disclosed that the boy would be handed over to security agencies for prosecution.

According to Oloyede: “Anybody who does post-result infraction will have their results withdrawn by the board.

“You are the fifth person. Two of them are already being prosecuted because we showed them clearly that they forged their results to deceive their parents who are desperate like your parents are to study medicine.

“We will prosecute you for attempting to damage the image of the board. We told your father that we have all the facts, if we find out that the facts are not correct you will be prosecuted.”

The 18-year-old becomes the fifth person whose UTME result was withdrawn and canceled by the board.

Oloyede said the boy edited the original score allocated to him by the board and presented it to his parents as the original result, adding that Unekwe’s parent had called the board, alleging irregularities in their son’s result.

Another source told DAILY POST that one of the students who dragged his telephone with the robbers sustained a machete wound. The source revealed that the robbers took to their heels at the approaching sound of sirens.
