Jide, a father who claims to be a professor, was on Thursday arrested by operatives of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), after he was caught assisting his daughter during the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.
He was arrested at the Brix Academy CBT Centre in the Jabi area of the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja.
According to JAMB, Jide sneaked into the exam centre but was however arrested eventually by security operatives.
“In Brix Academy in Jabi, a man penetrated the system, broke all security barriers, went into the examination hall and assisted his daughter. When arrested, he claimed to be a professor and also the owner of a non-governmental organisation. He has been picked up and he is with the security operatives. We believe that in no distant time, he will be prosecuted.
“He was not able to carry out his nefarious activity. He claimed to be a professor from a university outside the country,” Dr. Fabian Benjamin, JAMB Head of Information and Public Affairs, told Punch.
