Joint Admission and Matriculation Board cautioned UTME candidates to protect their properties or keep it at home.
Bukky Ojuade, JAMB official, who invigilated a CBT centre at the New Ocean Comprehensive High School, Ayobo, Lagos gave the warning after a candidate lost his phone.
Ojuade said the candidate who lost his phone complained that he could not recognise the person he gave his phone to before the screening began. He said, “The candidate gave his phone to someone at the gate because he thought the man was a staff of the school, after the examination, he couldn’t find the man and couldn’t even recognise him,”
“My best advice is that they should keep their properties at home or where it can be monitored by the officials, otherwise they will be accountable to whatever happens.
However, Ojuade advised candidates to arrive early to their examination centres adding that no opportunity would be given to candidates who miss their scheduled time.
The 2018 UTME started on Friday, March 9, and will end on Saturday, March 17.
