Report reaching us has it that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) through the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) has shut down blogs and websites that have “jamb” attached to their domain names in order to ensure they do not end up defrauding unsuspecting individuals.

This was disclosed by one of the owners of the affected sites.

According to him, he received a mail from his web host concerning the development.

The mail reads, “We got a complaint from JAMB through National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) on a number of domain names that are defrauding Nigerians using different variant of their name (JAMB), your website was listed among them, and we were instructed to investigate and suspend all the domain names involved”.

“We communicated the information to the Registrars of the domain names in question and requested them to kindly also investigate and take the appropriate action”.

“We understand that this domain names may not indulge in any fraudulent activity. However, we advice that you take down the contents of this site as requested by NITDA to avoid immediate suspension of the domain name”.
