The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB has launched a probe into the credentials of applicants dating back to 2009 across the country.

This indicates that persons who cheated the system to pass the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME to get into school and may have even graduated and participated in the National Youth Service Corps will be arrested and their certificates withdrawn.

The Board’s Head of Media and Information, Fabian Benjamin said the probe had begun and it would be completed in record time as JAMB had acquired software which would be able to identify fake biometric data.

The JAMB spokesman said they wands to do biometric verification dating ten years back. He added that the photos of those found culpable would be published for all to see even if they were now working class persons.
