13 students arrested for writing WASSCE on behalf of candidates

Some 13 students have been arrested by the Akyem Oda police for writing the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) on behalf of final year students. The students - nine from the university and four from senior high schools – were caught at the PLACID International School in Oda.

Eastern regional police PRO, ASP Ebenezer Tetteh said all suspects have been cautioned and detained. “They were picked up based on information received by the exams officer on the day at Oda and he quickly handed them over to the police.”

ASP Tetteh said the suspects will be arraigned in the shortest possible time and charged with the offense of impersonation so that they are punished. “This will serve as a deterrent for those who want to cheat the system,” he added. He said a new system adopted by examinations body, WAEC to identify students through pictures contributed greatly to the suspects' arrest.
