WAEC Supervisors Arrested for Leaking Examination Questions

Waec Supervisors Arrested For Leaking Examination Questions During A Monitoring Exercise To Some Schools In Yaba, Lagos State


Head of National Office, West Africa Examination Council, Patrick Areghan, has announced the arrest of some of its supervisors.

While disclosing this on Thursday August 20, 2020, Areghan stated that the supervisors revealed questions to candidates before the commencement of the West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination.

He disclosed this during a monitoring exercise to some schools in Yaba, Lagos State.

Areghan also told the candidates to shun examination malpractice and rely on their ability.

According to him, the visit was to monitor the exams which commenced on Monday and to ensure that students and teachers complied with COVID-19 safety measures.

“Students should not go about looking for anything they call expo.

“It is shameful that supervisors are collecting question papers from WAEC and going somewhere to open the questions.

“Yesterday, we caught one in Nasarawa. They don’t know that we have a way of detecting them.

“In Bauchi, we caught another. We detected it from here. In Port Harcout, a candidate did the same thing and was arrested,” said Areghan.
