Four UTME candidates arrested for destroying facilities in CBT centre


The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Bayelsa State on Thursday said it arrested four male candidates for vandalism during the ongoing Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations.

Mrs Christiana Abiakam-Omanu, Commandant of the NSCDC in the state, made this known in an interview with newsmen, NAN reports.

Obiakam-Omanu said that the four male candidates registered for the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) CBT examination in Otuoke centre in Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa.

”The suspects on June 22, disrupted the smooth exercise that was ongoing and destroyed some facilities in the centre.

”They were allowed to participate in the examination having been registered by JAMB as candidates for the exams,” she said.

The commandant however warned anyone who wants to tow the same line to steer clear of all CBT centres in the state as the NSCDC would bring offenders to face the law.

She said an investigation into the incident was in progress, adding that if found culpable, the suspects would face the full weight of the law.
