JAMB to probe CBT centres over extortion, threatens fine

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, is set to commence investigations into reported cases of extortions by some operators of Computer Based Test centres.

Reports have it that JAMB had announced a fixed rate for the 2022 UTME/DE registration and also provided relief for CBT operators due to the hike in diesel price.

However, the examination body noted that some CBT operators still extorted candidates.

Reports say the CBT operators found guilty will be subjected to payment of N100,000 fine.
