The Police at Force central command on Friday marched 17 suspects including School Principals, Teachers and Supervisors for their inclusion in assessment acts of neglect during the last West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) in the nation. 

The 17 suspects were captured from Kano, Bauchi, Nasarawa and Rivers states while different suspects grabbed for comparable acts of neglect in Delta, Enugu and Lagos states have been indicted in able courts. 

Power Public Relations Officer, DCP Frank Mba who strutted the presumes uncovered that their capture was made conceivable with the participation of the West African Examination Council. 

Mba stated, "WAEC has started enormous coordinated effort and organization with the Nigerian Police Force intended to fortify uprightness and crash a wide range of assessment misbehaviors. 

He lamented that the heft of the suspects are individual's utilized, prepared and are being paid by WAEC.

“Some of them are Teachers, Principals in Secondary Schools. One of them is a Primary School teacher. Some of them were host teachers, some are supervisors in the school where the exams took place”

The FPRO noted that the Police, working in synergy with WAEC is working to fashion out a robust policy that will henceforth checkmate activities of exam malpractices in WAEC

He advised parents and candidates to ensure their wards to prepare for their exams and shun exam malpractices and fraudulent practices.

The Force PRO added that all the suspects will be arraigned in court for prosecution.

In her speech, Mrs. Omolemi Hassan who represented the Head of National Council of WAEC, appreciated the Nigerian Police Force for the support which led to arrest of the suspects.

She noted that contrary to insinuations in the social media that there was leakage of WAEC examination question papers during the exams, there was nothing like that.

She said, “There was no leakage at all. It was those we trusted as invigilators, supervisors that tried to scuttle our efforts by taking pictures of the question papers and posting them to certain people. But before the suspect could escape, the Police arrested them.

One of the arrested suspects and Principal of a Private Secondary School, Essence Secondary School, Port Harcourt, Mr. Hanson Belot said he regretted that action even though many of the students were crying that because of Covid 19 lockdown, they were not thought many of the subjects as school.
