Nigerian teenager accompanies his friend to register UTME, tricks him

In another report, a young Nigerian man has said his friend who once accompanied him to register for his UTME but ended up stealing the pin is now in jail for another fraud.

The man, who said he feels like karma has played its role, narrated how the friend stole his JAMB registration pin when they were young and used it for himself.

Narrating the story on Twitter, @eronsjohnson said his friend followed him to a JAMB UTME registration center, but that they had to go back because there was a network problem. When he returned the next day to finish up the registration, his friend had already used the pin to his amazement.
