He said that the protests was sponsored to discredit the good work the Board is doing in the efforts to strengthen the quality of tertiary education in the country.

The registrar disclosed that the organizer of the protest who incidentally was an owner of a centre designated for the examination was aggrieved because he was not allowed by the JAMB officials at the centre to perpetrate examination malpractice.

He explained how a JAMB official at the Lagos Centre was threatened after rejecting N6 million bribe offer, saying this prompted the relocation of the candidates at the centre to Moro in Osun State.

The JAMB boss added that the owner of the centre, in the effort to justify money he collected illegally from parents and candidates organised the protest in Lagos.

It was also reported that a lady who was arrested at the centre for impersonation, confessed that she and others were paid N25,000 each to do the job.
