The West African Examination Council (WAEC) said it arrested about 10 supervisors for alleged involvement in examination malpractices in the ongoing Senior Secondary Certificate Examination across the country.

Mr. Patrick Areghan, Head of Nigeria National Office, WAEC disclosed that the culprits have been handed over to the police.

Areghan while speaking on Thursday, June 9, during the supervision of the examination in four centers in Abuja said the arrests were made in Lagos, Kano, Bayelsa and the Kaduna States.

“Our major problem lies with the supervisors as only a few of them are reliable and it’s unfortunate these are the supervisors that were nominated by the various states ministry of education and we employed them.

“We don’t have the power to nominate any supervisors on our own we only made use of credible teachers supplied to us by the ministry.

“But for a mere pot of porridge they sell their conscience and allow candidates to come into the examination hall with phones to snap question papers and post them on designated platforms,” he said.

“The good news is we caught them and they won’t go unpunished as we are working hand in hand with the Nigerian police,” he added.
