The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said it will revalidate the biometrics of candidates who sat for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in the last 10 years.

JAMB said this in a statement on Sunday in Lagos where it noted that the move is one of the board’s ways of detecting impersonation.

“This step is taken as a result of the huge number of applications recorded by the board, aimed at perfecting fraudulent acts that had aided impersonation in the first instance,” JAMB said.

“It should be noted that the board had, in recent times, been inundated with series of complaints bordering on change of names, state of origin, local government, gender, date of birth, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses and subject combination of candidates.

“The board, in its attempt to block all forms of examination malpractice, has discovered that one of the ways candidates employ is professional examination writers, who register using the candidate’s name and afterwards apply for [a] correction of such details, along the lines listed above.

“To address thus ugly trend therefore, the board has resolved to revalidate the biometrics of candidates that had taken the board’s examination to fish out these impersonators and prosecute them along with their sponsors.”
