JAMB falsely accused me of forging result – Mmesoma Ejikeme speaks out (Video)

16-year-old student, Mmesoma Ejikeme, has debunked allegations by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) that she forged her result.

In a trending video, the teenager recounted what happened and expressed shock that JAMB labeled her a forger when she was the person who drew the discrepancy to the exam body’s attention.

Mmesona, who said she was traumatised by the accusation, noted that she is not capable of doing what was alleged.

She said that she discovered that her score and the name on the result was different when she printed out from the JAMB portal again.

According to her, the student, she reported the matter to the Commissioner for Education and they reported the matter to JAMB, which then invited the DSS to investigate the matter.

She, however, said that they did not wait for the investigation to be concluded before going to the media to falsely accuse her of forgery.

Ejikeme said: “I am the owner of this result. I went to JAMB portal to print this result and this is what they gave me. This is the result here. This is my aggregate, 362. This is exactly how I downloaded it from that site. So, they (JAMB) now saying I forged my result is what I don’t know; and I’m traumatised that they accused me of forging my own result.

“I am not capable of forging results. This is the evidence. The QR code on the result was scanned and it showed another name, a Yoruba name, Omotola Afolabi, 138. That same person that got 138, they checked again and the person scored 238; meaning that there is problem somewhere.

“We showed this result to the Commissioner of Education, both this one and the SMS they sent to me. So, she snapped it and sent to the JAMB officials. They called back, saying that this was a forged result, that I forged it myself, that the JAMB office doesn’t have a record of this.

“They called the DSS over to come to her office. The DSS took us to their office and we made our statement there. The DSS said they would contact us later, that they are going to investigate this result to know where it came from.

“Instead of them (JAMB) to wait for the investigation to be over, they posted that I forged without confirming. I’m really really sad about it”.
