He had announced that the Board would consider the number of results to release on Saturday, after its Friday, May 10 meeting.

Professor Oloyede explained that the reason for the delay in the release of the results was the screening of candidates’ results to check for traces malpractice during the examinations.

In a related development, JAMB has arrested one of its staff who allegedly collected N25, 000 from a 2018 candidate to help secure admission.

The suspect is said to have been reported to the authorities when he could not fulfil the promised admission.

“We are not hiding anything; we are ready to deal with anybody caught and they must face the wrath of the law,” Oloyede said.
