The head, Media and Information of jamb, Fabian Benjamin, made this known in Abuja.

Dr. Benjamin said the probe had begun and it would be completed in record time as jamb had acquired software which would be able to identify fake biometric data, adding that jamb had written a letter to the attorney-general of the federation for advice on prosecution.

 He stated that the board had been able to arrest over 100 persons nationwide for malpractices in the ongoing examinations.
