Two identical twins have been arrested for alleged examination malpractice in the ongoing Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, at the University of Maiduguri centre, Borno.

Gutti said that the lookalike brothers tricked invigilators and security personnel to gain entrance to the centre.

He said one of them tried to sit for the examination on behalf of his brother.

The JAMB official explained that one, Hussain Andulhammeed, was captured in the biometric registration for the Computer Based Test (CBT), adding that this brother Hassan took advantage of their semblance and sat for the examination in place of his brother.

We did not suspect foul play until one of the invigilators noticed the other identical twin outside the examination hall.

“The invigilator became curious and asked him few questions; but not satisfied with answers he put them together for verification.

“It is unfortunate our findings showed that he was in the examination hall in place of his brother,” he said.

“The candidates had been penalised and handed over to security personnel,” he said

He explained that the examination was going smoothly in the eight designated centres in the state.
