Mr Ayuba said the command would not hesitate to arrest and prosecute any Service provider or group of persons who dare extort innocent students in the course of obtaining Form or Registration.
He said combating Examination malpractices during the UTME is non negotiable as NSCDC operatives will be deployed to the Fourteen (14) Accredited Centres in Ondo State.
He therefore enjoined all Parent and Guardians to desist from desperate acts that could lure their ward into Examination Malpractices.
He said…”Our officers and men have been deployed across the State to monitor the sales of UTME Forms and who ever is caught selling the Forms above the Stipulated amount as directed by the Federal Government will definitely face the wrath of the Law”.
The state Jamb Coordinator, Mr. Babatunde Bamisaye commended the efforts of the NSCDC in providing adequate security and ensuring discipline during the past UTME stressing that all necessary provisions have been made to ensure that this year examination is conducted in serene environments across the State.
