2 arrested for defrauding JAMB candidates

The Taraba Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has arrested two suspects for allegedly defrauding students at an illegal Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB) registration centre, News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported.

According to the medium, Alhaji Aliyu Ndanusa, the Taraba Commandant of NSCDC disclosed this to newsmen at the corps’ headquarters on Saturday.

He said the suspects were charging candidates N4,200 as against the government approved price of N4,000 for JAMB registration.

Ndanusa said that the NSCDC would not sit by and allow fraudulent persons to defraud unsuspecting members of the public.

He said the two were arrested following an outcry by JAMB officials in the state over the activities of unauthorized persons defrauding students of their hard earn money.

“Operatives of the NSCDC have been recently trained at a workshop for the purpose of monitoring the registration centres to ensure that they comply with the FG’s directives of N4,000 registration fees for JAMB.

“Anybody who adds any amount to this has already contravened the directives and will be made to face the wrath of the law,” he said.

Ndanusa said the suspects would be charged to court immediately after investigation.
