JAMB Uncovers Admission Racketeering at IMSU: 230 Fake Admission Letters Found

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has revealed a significant case of admission racketeering involving Imo State University (IMSU). 

The JAMB admission portal, known as CAPS, was reportedly compromised, leading to the issuance of 230 fake admission letters traced back to IMSU.

According to JAMB, four individuals, including Dr. Simon, were detained for two days in Owerri, Imo State.

 These individuals are now required to report every Tuesday to the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) office in the state.

 Despite the ongoing investigation, there is reportedly sufficient evidence to proceed with prosecution. 

The IMSU registrar and the admission officer were also interviewed in Abuja but were not detained. 

IMSU spokesperson Ralph Njokuobi responded to the allegations, emphasizing that the case remains under investigation. 

"Some of the staff members mentioned were invited to come and explain. 

It is an allegation until it is substantiated. The investigation is ongoing, and I don’t need to comment further as the case hasn’t gone to court," Njokuobi stated.

He added, "The law says you are innocent until proven guilty. It is an allegation, and if substantiated, they will face the music.

 There is no doubt about that. The accused officials continue to report to the ICPC for interrogation." 

The matter is expected to be brought to court soon, marking a significant step in the ongoing efforts to address admission fraud in Nigerian universities.
