2018 JAMB: UTME candidate who hid phone in pant arrested

Published

on

Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corp (NSCDC) personnel on Tuesday arrested two persons suspected to be using a cell phone to commit malpractice during the on-going Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

Commandant of NSCDC in FCT, Patrick Uba, announced the arrests to newsmen when he monitored the examinations in Abuja.

Uba said that the suspects were apprehended at Baptist Academy Centre, in Karu where one of the suspects, called Joy, went into the examination centre with a cell phone, which was among the banned items.

“She concealed the cell phone in her panties, went into the hall undetected and while the exam was going on, she brought it out to use.

“With the CCTV cameras in the hall, live activities are being transmitted and members of JAMB personnel and security on ground were able to detect what she was doing and arrested her.

“At the point of interrogation, she mentioned one Andrew, her accomplice, whom she said introduced her to the act and was sending her supposed answers to the questions, via the phone.

“They are both in our custody, we would carry out further investigation and arrest other accomplices if traced and they would be prosecuted in the court of law.”

Joy told newsmen that her act was an accident, adding that she was caught before she could use the phone.

“Other candidates were also making use of other materials too, I wasn’t the only one, but I did not report them, “she said.

Joy, who said she wanted to study Business Administration in the university, added that she had written the examinations more than five times without success.

Reacting to the incident, JAMB’s Head of Media, Mr Fabian Benjamin, said that the candidate was initially spotted from the surveillance camera at the JAMB headquarters in Bwari.

Benjamin noted that all centres conducting the examinations had surveillance cameras, used to monitor every activity in the examination halls.

“When we saw what was happening at Baptist Academy, we immediately dispatched a team to make the arrest.

“This should serve as a deterrent to others; there is no short cut to success, whatever you do at the centre, you would be spotted, it is not business as usual.”

New accuser claims Brett Kavanaugh put his private part in her face at Yale

New accuser claims Brett Kavanaugh put his private part in her face at Yale
A new woman has accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. The new accuser claims Kavanaugh exposed himself without her consent during their college years at Yale.

The New Yorker published a bombshell story on Sunday ahead of Kavanaugh’s Thursday hearing in D.C., where he’s already set to face-off against Christine Blasey Ford who has accused him of a sexual assault when they were both in high school.

The sexual assault claims brought against Brett Kavanaugh led to the Twitter hashtag #WhyIDidn’tReport after US President Donald Trump defended him and asked his accuser why she didn’t speak up years ago (read here).

In the latest accusation made against Brett Kavanaugh, a woman named Deborah Ramirez claims Kavanaugh put his exposed penis in her face at a dorm party during their freshman year at Yale sometime between 1983 and ’84. She says she got drunk during a drinking game, and that at one point a male classmate (not Kavanaugh) pointed a dildo at her.

In this new story, written by Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer, the woman says soon after she was on the floor, foggy and slurring her words when she says she remembers seeing a real penis smack dab in her face. She tells the New Yorker she recalls other students telling her to kiss it. Ramirez says she pushed the person away, touching the penis in the process, and then saw Kavanaugh standing next to her, pulling his pants up and laughing.

She says she also remembers another student shouting down the hall, “Brett Kavanaugh just put his penis in Debbie’s face.” Ramirez says she specifically remembers hearing his full name.

Ramirez admits that parts of her memory on the alleged incident are fuzzy, but the New Yorker notes “After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney” Ramirez felt confident in the details of her story.

As for Kavanaugh, he tells the New Yorker:

This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so. This is a smear, plain and simple. I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name–and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building–against these last-minute allegations.

A White House spokesperson also expressed support for Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh is still waiting to be confirmed to the Supreme Court as President Trump’s latest nominee.
