Mmesoma: JAMB Concludes Investigations, Reveals Shocking Details

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) said it has concluded its investigation on the case of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination candidate, Mmesoma Ejikeme, who was accused of ‘upgrading’ her 2023 UTME score.

Recall that the university admission examination body earlier revealed how Mmesoma and some other candidates in the UTME upgraded their scores above their original scores were detected.

JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishiaq Oloyede, on Tuesday, stated that during the investigation the board uncovered several other candidates who engaged in such a shady act.

Oloyede said their acts are now uncovered and they can not manipulate the JAMB score.

He said, “The truth is that JAMB has concluded the investigation on Nmesoma’s score falsification matter. She was not the only one caught, just that others have chosen not to go out.

“Presently, there is an industry faking results and unfortunately they cannot penetrate JAMB system, reasons being that (our) system is foolproofed and we will prove it any time. It is unfortunate that parents and some of the candidates that are being fooled are not aware that they are only being fooled.

“There is internal evidence to show that the change in Ejikeme’s scores was done with her collaboration. There are certain features pertaining to her that only her knows unless she makes it available to somebody else. They couldn’t have increased her scores on her behalf.”

Oloyede added that he had earlier spoken with a former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, on Nmesoma’s matter, and told her that it was a high-level scam

“We improved on our facilities this year, so Ejikeme and her collaborators are still living in the past. I spoke with Mrs Ezekwesili on the matter and I told her that it is a high-level scam and I told her that it was a careless forgery.

“This is because we are no longer using some of the things they used in changing those results since 2021. We used that pattern in 2021 and you saw what happened and many of such individuals were caught as well and they were treated accordingly,” he stated.

One thought on “Mmesoma: JAMB Concludes Investigations, Reveals Shocking Details

  1. All I know is that JAMB is being led by a man of high integrity and corruption free.
    But if we doubt him, then we aren’t sincere with ourselves.
    If I were the girl, I will ask them to set another questions on the different subjects and she is made to retake with others caught in the act. If all caught in the act can score 250 and above, JAMB should be made by law to compensate them.
