How Anambra student Ejikeme Mmesoma forged her UTME result – JAMB spokesperson reveals

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has maintained its stance that trending Anambra student, Ejikeme Mmesoma, inflated her result in the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

The board, had in a statement released on Sunday, July 2nd, announced that Mmesoma, a student of the Anglican Girls Secondary School, Nnewi in Anambra State, inflated her result and falsely proclaimed herself as the top scorer for the 2023 UTME.

According to JAMB, Mmesoma’s actual score in the examination was 249, contrary to the 362 she has been claiming.

However, in a video, the girl denied forging the result, noting that the allegation against her by JAMB has left her traumatized.

Despite Mmesoma’s insistence that she did not forge her result and that the result she’s parading was printed from JAMB’s official website, Fabian Benjamin, the spokesperson of JAMB, reiterated in an interview with Leadership that no candidate scored 362 in the 2023 UTME.

Regarding how the board determined that the result Mmesoma was parading is fake, Benjamin stated that the QR Code on the result she was holding showed that it belonged to a candidate who sat for the exam in 2021, and that candidate scored 138.

The JAMB spokesperson alleged that Mmesoma had edited someone else’s result and started parading herself as the highest scorer of the 2023 UTME.

He also claimed that the design of the result Mmesoma has with her is different from what JAMB used for the 2023 UTME candidates.

“Immediately the result was released, she checked her result. Instead of sending ‘result’ to 55019 to view her result, she sent ‘UTME’ to the code. But because the phone number she is using is a unique identifier, the machine then sent her the result.

She then doctored the result the way she wanted it and sent it back to the USSD code. The code also returned her original result again. She sent it like four times and got her original result,” he said in part.
