The Jigawa State Commandant, Alh Garba Muhammad, who gave the warning during a courtesy visit to Jigawa State JAMB office in Dutse, the state capital, said some Computer Based Test Centers and e-pin outlets were in the habit of charging JAMB examination fees above Government stipulated rate. 6. A popular Lagos-based trado-medical expert, Mr Fatai Yusuf, otherwise known as Oko Oloyun, has been assassinated by some unknown gunmen. The herbal guru, who has his office along the LASU/Iba Road around Igando area of Lagos State, was reportedly shot dead by some hoodlums at Igboora along Abeokuta-Iseyin road in Oyo State. 7.
