The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB has resolved to reconfirm bio-metrics of all candidates that sat for its Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination UTME.

The board made this known in its weekly Bulletin of the Office of the Registrar, in Abuja.

The board said that the development was to detect impersonators, fish them out and prosecute them along their sponsors.

It also vowed to publish names of impostors in order to serve as a deterrent to others as well as stem the antics of professional examination takers.

According to the board, the step was taken as a result of a huge number of applications it received with the aim of perfecting fraudulent acts that have aided impersonation in the past.

The board said that it had in recent time, been inundated with series of complaints bordering on change of name, state of origin, local government, gender, date of birth, subject combination among others.
