By The Citizen

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Monday alerted the public of fake Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in circulation.

Alhaji Kamaldeen Oladeji, the Coordinator of the Board in Lagos made this known in Lagos.

Oladeji said that the board's annex in Lagos had it that some persons were selling fake e-facility card for the board's 2014 UTME.

“I want to seize this opportunity to sensitise the public of this ugly development.

“ Some candidates have reported the purchase of fake e-facility cards to the JAMB National Headquarters Annex at No. 11, Ojora Road, Ikoyi, Lagos.

'The candidates said they bought the fake e-facility card from vendors at the Lagos State University (LASU) and around Ikotun and Sango Otta.

“The e-facility card provides the PIN for the access to printing the original UTME result slip and JAMB admission letter only.

“The candidates complained of the e-facility cards not only being sold, but also sold at more than the quoted purchase price of N1,000,' he said.

Oladeji added that the e-facility card was only available for sale to the public at the board's offices nationwide.

Oladeji warned that any vendor found selling the e-facility outside the board's offices nationwide would face the wrath of the law.
