A 21-year-old JAMB candidate was allegedly arrested by operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Nasarawa State for being in possession of a gun at one of the centres of the ongoing Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (JAMB UTME) in the state.

When asked what he was doing with the gun, the candidate claimed someone gave it to him for ‘safe-keeping’. After he was caught with a locally made pistol and two rounds of live ammunition.

Speaking with pressmen today, the state commandant of the NSCDC Bashir Lawal-Kano, withheld the the name of this suspect but the commandant added that he would be charged to court for carrying ammunition to an exam centre.

Here’s what the commandant, Lawal-Kano told the press:

We have had reports of some criminal elements posing as our recruitment agents and following our intelligence, we arrested the suspect with full uniform of NSCDC and forged recruitment forms. We are therefore charging him to court for impersonation and fraud as soon as investigation is completed.
