An unidentified final year female student of the Department of Library and Information Science, Delta State University, Abraka, was caught in malpractice, with micro-chips during an examination that held over the weekend.
According to reports, the final year student was caught while sitting for an examination on Entrepreneurship and Information Services.
One Sylvester Okiemute, an examiner, allegedly walked into her after having observed her suspicious moves while the examination was going on.
Sylvester, with the conviction that the student was making reference to a paper she 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.
As the report goes, when the examiner couldn’t come to terms with the cheat’s denial, he reportedly dipped his hands into her private part and recovered the incriminating materials, with pen prints all over her body.
A source who pleaded anonymity said: “She was earlier caught by an examiner and when she pleaded, she was pardoned. Then the examiner gave her another booklet to start again.
“It was just about 45 minutes after she started again, another examiner caught her with pieces of paper, with answers written all over her thighs,” the source noted.
The Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Victor Peretomode, while confirming the incident, said the accused will be expelled.
“The University has declared total war on illegality and examination malpractices.“Any student, no matter how highly placed; found to be involved in examination malpractices, would be shown the way out,” Victor added.
