The Head of Nigeria National Office of the West African Examinations Council, Patrick Areghan, has said 56 roadside operators were apprehended over their involvement in examination malpractice in the ongoing 2023 May/June Senior Secondary Certificate Examination.

Areghan, who disclosed this while on an inspection tour to some schools in Abuja, added that about 15 others, comprising students, school proprietor and teachers were also arrested.

He said the arrest was made in Maiduguri, Ibadan, Abeokuta and Umuahia, adding that the suspects will be handed over to the police and will parade them on national televisions, before their prosecution.

According to the WAEC boss, hired supervisors were the ones giving the Council problem through their deep involvement in examination malpractice, insisting that supervisors are usually recommended by the Ministry of Education.
