BUK dismisses 178 students for submitting forged IJMB results

Lamara Garba, the Head of Public Affairs at Bayero University Kano, said that the institution recently expelled 178 candidates accepted via the Interim Joint Matriculation Board (IJMB) exams between 2019 and 2021 for submitting forged results.

According to Garba, 142 candidates were captured with fabricated IJMB results between 2019 and 2020, while 36 fraudulent admission seekers were discovered in 2021 and were all dismissed.

He indicated that the majority of holders of IJMB certificates did not sit for the tests in order to obtain the certificate, but rather had the results faked at computer centers by racketeering syndicates.

He noted that the institution has a system in place for validating results, such as those from the SSCE or polytechnics and colleges of education, in order to identify falsified ones.
