The Ogun State Command during the week warned students sitting for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to stay away from any form of examination malpractice and avoid getting into trouble.
The Ogun state Police Public Relation Officer (PPRO), DSP Bimbola Oyeyemi, gave the warning in an interview with pressmen in Ota, Ogun state.
Reports revealed that no fewer than 1.8 million candidates will be sitting for the UTME organized by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), across the entire country starting from April 11, 2019.
“The police has the power under the laws to prosecute anybody caught in any form of malpractice during the JAMB examination,” he stated.
He reminded the students that exam malpractice is an offence, and anyone caught violating the law would be arrested and prosecuted, adding that the police would be in various centres in the state to monitor and ensure that there was no breakdown of law and order.
