Shedding more light on the situation via a bulletin, Jamb explained that they stepped in immediately their attention was drawn to the development.

The bulletin read, “The attention of the University was promptly drawn to this development, and a vehement denial of authorizing its security personnel to prevent any genuine candidates from entering the institution was issued.

“According to the University, no such authority was given to that effect and it decried the attendant embarrassment the incident had caused to the institution.

“It was, therefore, against this backdrop that upon learning of the the University along with its CBT Centre officials, had rushed to the gate to rescue the unfortunate situation and ensure that the candidates take their examination.

“Regrettably, the unwarranted delay prevented the affected candidates from meeting the time for the examination.”
