A self- acclaimed professor , identified only as Jide , has been arrested by operatives of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps , after he was caught assisting his daughter during the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination in the Jabi area of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja .
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board confirmed Jide ’ s arrest on Thursday , which was the first day of the UTME , noting that the man sneaked into a Computer- Based Test centre in Jabi but he was later arrested by operatives and was now in custody .
Our correspondent learnt that Jide was arrested at the Brix Academy CBT Centre in Jabi while the UTME was on , trying to assist his daughter in the examination .
The JAMB Head of Information and Public Affairs , Dr Fabian Benjamin , in an interview with our correspondent , said the NSCDC would go on with Jide ’ s prosecution at the end of its investigations .
He said , “ In Brix Academy in Jabi, a man penetrated the system , broke all security barriers , went into the examination hall and assisted his daughter . When arrested , he claimed to be a professor and also the owner of a non – governmental organisation . He has been picked up and he is with the security operatives . We believe that in no distant time , he will be prosecuted .
“ He was not able to carry out his nefarious activity . He claimed to be a professor from a university outside the country . ”
