Ejikeme Mmesoma, a student of Anglican Girls Secondary School, Nnewi, Anambra, has been in the eye of the storm following an allegation of forgery levied against her by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

The examination body had accused Mmesoma of forging her result, an allegation the latter described as “traumatizing.”.

Mmesoma, however, insisted that she print her result from the JAMB portal.

Mmesoma, who took to social media to defend herself on Monday, said she was not capable of forging JAMB results.

Innocent Chukwuma, Chairman of Innoson Vehicles Manufacturing Company, recently celebrated Mmesoma and gave her a N3 million scholarship for her claimed score of 362 in the 2023 UTME. She was also said to have been booked for recognition by the Anambra State Government before ‘Nigeria happened to her’.

While displaying the result, she said, “My name is Mmesoma. I’m the owner of this result. I went to the JAMB portal to print this result, and this is what they gave me. This aggregate of 362 is exactly how I printed it. But they are now saying that I forged the result, of which I don’t know”.

How the drama started

Mmesoma, according to the Parallel Facts gathered, was invited to the JAMB office, and when the result was scanned, it showed another name, a Yoruba name Omotola, saying beloved that something was actually wrong.

According to her, she had always been a brilliant pupil who had secured first place in primary school.

Mmesoma said she was invited to the police station where her statement was taken, and she was told that the investigation was ongoing.

Parallel Facts understands that many concerned Nigerians have been calling for a thorough investigation over the matter, while some unpopular opinions suggest this may have “political undertones.”.
