How 2 JAMB officials were almost burnt alive inside LASPOTECH

Two officials of Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, were nearly set ablaze inside Lagos State Polytechnic, LASPOTECH, yesterday.

According to Ishaq Oloyede, JAMB registrar, the officials were attacked at the mock centre in the institution.

He said the two officials would also have been set ablaze but for the quick intervention that saved them from the attempted jungle justice.

He said the reason for the dastardly attack was yet to be ascertained, even as the two officials have been taken to the hospital.

He spoke when Adamu Adamu, Minister of Education, visited some computer-based test, CBT, centres in Abuja during the mock examination.

The registrar said the attack took place at a centre in the Lagos State Polytechnic.

He said: “The very first sad thing that we noticed was that two of our staff were almost murdered in Lagos.

“There was an attempt on their lives at the Lagos State Polytechnic. For whatever reason, they were wet with petrol and they were to be set ablaze.

“We have sent a rescue team and they took them to the hospital. We are still looking into what happened, but we have evacuated our staff from the place.

“We hope that whoever attempted that, the law enforcement agencies will not allow such an assault on innocent officials of government who went about their normal business.
