UTME 2013 Results: NSCDC Arrests 82 Candidates Over Exam Malpractice!!!

Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Ogun State Command, said weekend, that it had arrested about 82 candidates of the just-concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, in the state for alleged involvment in examination malpractices.
The exam, held last Saturday in about 108 centres across the state, however, recorded no violence.

State Corps Commandant, Aboluwoye Akinwande, in a statement by the Command Public Relations Officer, Kareem Olanrewaju, said the candidates were arrested from different centres across the state for cutting corners during the examination.

Akinwande said, 30 candidates were arrested in various centres in Abeokuta, nine in Ewekoro local government, while others were arrested at OlabisiOnabanjoUniversity, OOU centre, and MolusiCollege in Ijebu-Ode, Ijebu-Ode Local Government Area of the state.

“Some of them were caught using their phones while others were in possession of prohibited materials like books, palm tops, Scientific calculators among others. The Corps will take appropriate action on the candidates caught cheating.

”The first thing is that they have been made to fill relevant forms. Investigation will be conducted, that will determine their culpability and then we can decide on their trial. Necessary information about them have been collected.

“Apart from the arrest, no violence was recorded in any of the 108 examination centres. The large number of arrest recorded was as a result of effective coverage by Civil Defence. They were taken by surprise as they thought it was business as usual.

“The Corps will continue to do its best at all time to ensure examination malpractices are reduced to the minimum if not eradicated. We will continue to appreciate the support of candidates, parents and other stakeholders,” the Corps Commander said.
