NO fewer than six female students, one of them a final year student of the Department of Library and Information Science, Delta State University, Abraka, were last Friday caught with “expo materials” during examination.
An examiner identified as Sylvester Okiemute caught a final year female student of the Department of Library and Information Science with incriminating materials during an examination.
Sources said the student was caught while sitting for an exam on ‘Entrepreneurship and Information Services’ who had been observing her suspicious moves.
It was gathered that the examiner, convinced that the student was making reference to a paper he smuggled in, asked her to hand over the paper.
The girl denied and that led to a shouting match between the examiner and the student. It was gathered that the examiner dipped his hands into her private part recovered the incriminating materials.
Our source, who narrated the incident on condition of anonymity, said the student was earlier caught by another examiner and she pleaded with the examiner, who later pardoned her.
She was reportedly given another booklet to start over again, but was caught again, 45 minutes later. Confirming the incident, the university Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Victor Peretomode, said the university had declared total war on illegality and examination malpractices.
Peretomode warned that any student, no matter how highly placed, found to be involved in examination malpractices would be shown the way out.
