‘Someone is coaching her’ — JAMB speaks on Anambra pupil’s video



The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has claimed someone is coaching Ejikeme Mmesoma on what to say amid the forgery allegation against her.


On Monday, Mmesoma dismissed the allegation by the board that she forged her 2023 UTME result.


JAMB had said the student actually scored 249 in the exam — not 362 as claimed.


But the Anambra pupil countered the board’s claim in a viral video, saying she printed her result from the JAMB portal.


She also said the allegation has left her “‘traumatised,” adding that “I am not capable of forging my own result”.


Addressing Mmesoma’s counter-argument in an interview with Channels TV on Tuesday, Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s spokesperson, said “there are people behind” the student’s action.


“If you look at her posture – look at the video very well. If you look at the video critically, you will see that somebody is coaching her on what to say. Just sit down and look at the video she posted yesterday,” he said.


 “So, certainly, there are people behind it (her action), and those are the people that we are looking for.”


The board had earlier withdrawn Mmesoma’s result and suspended her from partaking in UTME for the next three years over the incident.
