Investigation concluded on Mmesoma's result falsification, Confirmed by JAMB Registrar.

According to Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), the investigations regarding the case of Mmesoma Ejikeme, a candidate accused of fraudulently inflating her 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) score, have been concluded.

Prof. Oloyede clarified that Mmesoma was not the sole individual caught in this act, but others involved had chosen to remain undisclosed. He emphasized that there is an industry engaged in faking results, although they have been unable to breach the JAMB system due to its foolproof nature. He assured that the JAMB system's security measures remain intact and invulnerable.

Regarding Mmesoma's case, the Registrar stated that there is internal evidence indicating her collaboration in the score alteration. Certain unique aspects related to her were involved in the process, and only she possesses knowledge of these details, unless she disclosed them to someone else. It was impossible for her scores to be increased without her involvement.

Furthermore, Prof. Oloyede mentioned that he had previously discussed the matter with former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, describing it as a high-level scam. He clarified that JAMB has improved its facilities, rendering the methods used by Mmesoma and her collaborators outdated. These methods were employed in 2021, resulting in numerous individuals being apprehended and appropriately dealt with.

In conclusion, the investigation into Mmesoma's result falsification has been completed, affirming the Registrar's commitment to maintaining the integrity of the JAMB system and preventing fraudulent activities in the examination process.
