The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof Is-haq Oloyede has raised alarm of a plot by scammers to clone his voice, adding that some of them even tried to call him to record his voice
Penpushing reports that Oloyede disclosed this while reacting to controversy surrounding the alleged fake result being claimed by a candidate who sat the 2023 examination, Ejikeme Mmesoma, that she scored highest mark in the examination conducted by the body responsible for the conduct of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME),
‘Some of them even tried to call me to record my voice so they can clone it, to prove that I already confirmed the girl’s result as authentic. They didn’t know that I was already aware of their game. It is a high-level involvement with many people. It is a complete scam, and we have handed over the girl to the security operatives, but she is on bail”, he said
Penpushing further reports that he explained that investigations by Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), revealed that the student was either duped or she is a member of a high-level syndicate engaging in manufacturing fake results.
The registrar insisted that the result being displayed by the female student of Anglican Girls Secondary School (AGSS) Nnewi, Enugu State belongs to another candidate who sat the examination two years ago, explaining that scan of the code also attested to that
“If you scan the code, the candidate’s result will show. So I can say emphatically that the girl is parading a fake result. It is either she is being duped, or she is part of a syndicate manufacturing purported JAMB results’, Oloyede added.
‘There are security features on our results, so I can emphasise that the girl is just trying to deceive the public. Her result is completely fake. Her claim that she printed the result from our site is a lie, totally incorrect. If we should reveal all that we know, people will be shocked. So if people are looking for shortcuts to achieve an end, that is what would happen”, he stated
Penpushing also reports that Oloyede emphasized that the issue has nothing to do with Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), stressing that the result did not emanate from its system, adding that the website of the board was not hacked into
The Registrar of Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) pointed out that there are various syndicates engaging in the manufacturing of fake results, adding that the matter had been handed over to the police and that due prosecution would be followed to the letter.
