The Ilorin Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested three persons, including a Vice-Principal for allegedly collecting money from students to commit exam malpractice in the ongoing National ExamCouncil (NECO) at Government Day Secondary School, Ote, in Eiye-Nkorin Area of Kwara State.
This is contained in the press statement issued by the Head Media and publicity of the commission, Wilson Uwujaren, made available to journalists in Ilorin Tuesday.
The statement also reads, “The Suspects are, the Vice-Principal of the School, Issa Abdulrahman, a Teacher, Usman Lanre Kayode and a Supervisor of the Exam in the Centre, Saka Isiaka.
“The Commission had received an intelligence report that the school management and supervisors of the centre were extorting monies from the Students writing NECO in order to assist them in the exam.
“It was gathered that the Principal of the school usually separates the students who could not contribute money, and put them another classroom to write their papers.
“But problem started when an operative of the Commission dressed in an unusual way on Friday, 6th of December, pretending to be a passerby visited the school.
“An iPad containing answers to all the questions was recovered from them.” (Vanguard)
