ICPC secures 20-year conviction for erring examiner
The Independent Corrupt Practices and other related Offences Commission (ICPC) yesterday said it had secured a 20-year jail term for one Mr. Olanrewaju Kayode, a part-time examiner at The Polytechnic, Ibadan, for allegedly committing examination malpractice.
In statement by its spokesperson, Rasheedat Okoduwa, the agency said the sentence was handed down by “Justice Joyce Abdulmalik of the Federal High Court sitting in Ibadan, Oyo State after having found Kayode guilty of all charges preferred against him.”
The “convict” was a part-time examiner who assessed and marked students’ examination scripts of the institution’s Department of Accountancy.
He had been arraigned by ICPC in June 2016 on a five-count charge for allegedly “collecting sums of money from five students and attempting to assist them to alter and secure higher examination scores on different scripts written outside the examination hall.”
