Two officials of the Joint Admissions and
Matriculation Examination Board were attacked
by unidentified persons during the Unified
Tertiary Matriculation Examination mock exam
at a centre around the Lagos State Polytechnic
in Lagos State.

JAMB Registar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, confirmed
the development during an interaction with
reporters on Monday in Abuja.
According to him, the police have commenced
investigations into the incident.

Oloyede, who led the Minister of Education,
Adamu Adamu, to monitor the UTME mock
exam at some computer-based test centres in
Abuja, said the officials would have been set
ablaze but for the timely intervention of
security officials at the venue.

The registrar, who said 157,000 candidates sat
for the exam nationwide, added that the
injured workers in Lagos were receiving
treatment at hospital.

He said, “The very first sad thing that we
noticed was that two of our workers were
almost murdered in Lagos. There was an
attempt on their lives around the Lagos State
Polytechnic. For whatever reason, they poured
petrol on them and were about to set them
ablaze.

“The reason for this attack cannot yet be
ascertained.”

He added that 698 computer-based test
centres would conduct the UTME between April
11 and 15.

Oloyede said the board had delisted 14 CBT
centres due to infractions such as technical
hitches.

He said, “The centres which went to borrow
computers for the exams have been stopped.
We now have about 698 centres left.”
