Four representatives of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) were arrested by the examining body.
They were arrested for selling ePINS for the ongoing Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) direct enrollment (DE) for 2020 above the specified amount.
The suspects were identified as Abdulrazak Adiza, Mathew Joe, Obekee Godday and Inyang Patrick.
JAMB spokesman Fabian Benjamin, who confirmed the arrest in a statement, said the cost of the ePINs is N3500 and the reading text is N500.
He added that any sale of ePINS beyond the prescribed amount would be immediately sanctioned.
The statement states: “The Board is aware that representatives of certain registered outlets sell the JAMB registration ePINs at a price higher than the mandatory fee.
“On Wednesday, January 15th, 2020, an Amodu Friday was arrested on which the ePINs were sold above the regulated fee.
Investigations also showed that he actually issued receipts that covered the regulated fee but generated higher earnings. This is a clear case of crime. “
