According to the statement issued by the Head, Information, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin has stated that soldiers would be drafted to the Computer Based unified Tertiary Matriculation UTME centres in some parts of the country in other to beef up security.
According to Myschool, the statement said, this decision was taken after a meeting between JAMB registrar, Prof. Is-haq O. Oloyede and the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai in Abuja, Nigeria capital.
In his statement he said, “The Board had formed a common synergy with the army to secure the Computer Based Test (CBT) centres with a view to having a hitch free examination for the 2017 UTME.

“This need became imperative to seek for security intervention from the army, particularly in turbulent areas.”

Giving his own part of speech on the development, General Buratai said that some of the flash points pointed by the registrar were not only safe but habitable adding that normalcy, particularly in the Northeast had returned even as he promised to deploy troop for more surveillance and protection during the examinations.
