The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said that it has blacklisted 116 exam centres over “registration-related misconduct”.
The examination body said it includes a Computer-based Test centre in Akokwe, Delta State after the operators allegedly bribed exam officers with N1.7m.
The ex-University of Ilorin vice-chancellor said, “We have identified the candidates involved and their results are withheld.
“While not being aware that JAMB was monitoring, the two centres in Akokwe in Ideato examination town paid N1,760,000.00 to compromise the workers on duty. The workers concerned are being investigated to determine their culpability.
“We have recovered the payment voucher and the workers being investigated claimed that they received the bribe because their lives were in danger.”
He said the exam recorded multiple registrations, pointing out that a candidate, for instance, registered 23 times for the examination.
