The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) candidates in Port Harcourt, River State Capital, were reported to have staged a protest on Thursday.
Daily Post reported that the cause of the protest was the continued postponement of the collection of their e-slips and the postponement of an examination date that was originally fixed for February 21st to March 2nd.
The infuriated candidates faulted JAMB for calling on the police, who fired teargas canisters at them on Monday in order to disperse the crowd from the JAMB board.
A source reported to the SUN Newspaper saying:
“we have been here since Monday till today and we have been here since morning. They told us to come and, here we are, but they are nowhere to be found”.
It was also learnt that the JAMB office was invaded by the Jamb candidates on Wednesday for not being able to receive their e-slips.
