Some candidates, who wrote the 2016 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination (UTME) Computer Based Test (CBT), took their grievances to the Lagos State House of Assembly in Alausa, Lagos yesterday. But the candidates, numbering hundreds, along with their parents and tutorial centre operators, went violent.
They threw stones at the Assembly security gate and security men to ventilate their anger after waiting for hours without being attended to by the Lawmakers. Some of the candidates were arrested by members of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS), who were mobilised to prevent them from entering the Assembly premises.
They faulted the “wrong scores” released by the Joint Admissions Matriculation Board (JAMB) for the examination.
