Teacher arrested for contracting uni. students, others to write WASSCE for candidates

A teacher has been arrested for allegedly contracting 13 people, mostly university students, to write exams for some candidates in the ongoing West African Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

The Police in Oda are withholding the identity of the teacher who was arrested Friday morning. They are citing security reasons.

Police say they will put the 13 people, the teacher as well as the WASSCE candidates whose paper the suspects were to write, before court for prosecution after investigations into the case are concluded.

They are currently on Police bail.

The 13 people were arrested by the Police in Oda in the Eastern Region for impersonating and attempting to write examination for some WASSCE students.

Police say the 13 were contracted from across the country, to write a paper in the WASSCE examination for some students of Placid International School at Oda.
