Ndanusa said that the NSCDC would not sit back to allow fraudulent persons to defraud the unsuspecting members of the public.He said the two were arrested following an outcry by JAMB officials in the state over the activities of unauthorized persons defrauding students of their hard earn money.

“Operatives of the NSCDC have been recently trained at a workshop for the purpose of monitoring the registration centres to ensure that they comply with the FG’s directives of N4,000 registration fees for JAMB.

“Anybody who adds any amount to this has already contravened the directives and will be made to face the wrath of the law,” he said.Ndanusa said the suspects would be charged to court immediately after investigation.
