The identity and countries where two foreigners who tried to write Nigeria Immigration Service examination came from have been made public.
The two foreigners arrested yesterday, according to NIS are from Benin republic and Cameroon.
About 191,000 candidates sat for the exams into NIS and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) conducted nationwide by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
Technical Assistant to the Minister of Interior in a tweet said the two arrested foreigners are Camerounian and Beninese.
“@nigimmigration officers intercept two non-Nigerians who attempted to participate in today’s CbAT for recruitment into the Service.
“They are Camerounian and Beninore citizens. They have been interrogated, profiled, and referred to ACG zone A for further action,” it said.
Secretary of the civil defence, correctional, fire and immigration services board Yakmut Saleh witnessed the computer-based examination.
According to him, the examination which took place simultaneously in 126 centres in the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja was conducted by JAMB to ensure transparency and avoid rancour and confusion that trailed a similar exercise a few years ago.
