In a country where corruption thrives, one would only hope that the upcoming youths whom they say are the leaders of tomorrow would raise Nigeria up again.

Unfortunately it cannot be certain as some youths contribute immersely to corrupt and fraudulent activities even at a tender age, as that is the case of these twins reportedly supposed to sit for the UTME but tried to outsmart authorities in their scam.

Two identical twins have been arrested for alleged examination malpractice in the ongoing Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), at the University of Maiduguri centre, Borno.

Mr Babagana Gutti, Chief Examiner Officer in the state, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the twins were apprehended by the security operatives on Saturday in Maiduguri.

Gutti said that the lookalike brothers tricked invigilators and security personnel to gain entrance to the centre.

He said one of them tried to sit for the examination on behalf of his brother.

The JAMB official explained that one, Hussain Andulhammeed, was captured in the biometric registration for the Compute Base Test (CBT), adding that the second persons Hassan took advantage of their semblance and sat for the examination in place of his brother.

“We do not suspect foul play until one of the invigilators noticed the other identical twin outside the examination hall.

“The invigilator became curious and asked him few questions; but not satisfied with answers he put them together for verification.

“It is unfortunate our findings showed that he was in the examination hall in place of his brother,” he said.

Tthe number of students gaining admissions into specialised and competitive degree courses has steadily grown over the years across the country. But when it comes to Medicine, four states have dominated admission trends for at least five years, consistently trouncing the other 32 states and the Federal Capital Territory.

The states are Imo, Anambra, Delta and Enugu.
