Authorities at the Delta State University
has arrested a Mechanical Engineering student of the Federal University of Petroleum Resources, Effurun, for alleged impersonation during an examination.
The student, Inneh Aisosa was reportedly nabbed when writing examinations for Onakpoma Oghenetega, a 400-level student of the Abraka campus of the university.
A statement by the Public Relations Officer of DELSU also revealed that Aisosa, who was caught on February 23, was apprehended by members of DELSU Examination Monitoring Group in collaboration with invigilators.
The PR officer, Eddy Agbure on Wednesday, March 2, said, “With this development, it is obvious that some of our unserious-minded students have introduced new tactics to perpetrate examination malpractice,” the press statement said.
“While law abiding and committed students of the university are busy reading very hard for their examinations, the lazy ones are busy engaging mercenaries from within and outside the university to write examinations for them with the sole aim of getting good grades.
“This is totally unacceptable and management of the university will not relax in the relentless was against this academic fraud.”
