A Federal High Court sitting in Akure, Ondo State, on Tuesday remanded four persons for impersonation and examination malpractices in the examination conducted by the
Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board.

The defendants include Timilehin Akinwale, Olayinka
Mustapha, Peter Okereke, and Feranmi Adesuyi.

According to the prosecution, Moses Osimhen, the first three
defendants; Akinwale, Mustapha and Okereke committed the
offence of impersonation on February 15, 2023, during the
Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination at a Computer-
Based Test centre located at Aina Awaw International
College, Ilu Abo, Akure while Adesuyi committed the said
offence on April 28 at Amable Nigeria Limited CBT Centre in
Owo, during the 2023 JAMB examination.

Osimhen told the court that the offences were contrary to
Section 3(3)(c) of the Examination Malpractices Act, Cap
E15, LFN, 2004 and punishable under the same section.

The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges
preferred against them.

The prosecutor prayed the court to remand the suspects
pending the date for the hearing.

The defendants’ counsel, Clement Falana and Austin
Agbounghale, pleaded for the court to grant their clients
bail, stating that the offences committed by the defendants
were bailable.
