Luck ran out on ten examination officials and an imposter when they were arrested for their alleged involvement in examination malpractice in the course of the just ended Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

The officials, who were supervisors, invigilators and router, were picked up by security officials in Accra between September 16 and 18, this year (2020), while the examination was going on.

Routers collect question papers form the depot and distribute them to centres along an assigned route.

Their arrest was based on underground investigations by West African Examinations Council (WAEC’s) security officers.

The eleven suspects were caught with mobile phones, and checks on  the phones revealed snapshots of question papers, including those that were written on the day of the arrest.

Most of the suspects were arrested at a single school, Ambassador School of Excellence at Dansoman, where Reuben Aninakwah, a supervisor, Dela Gavor, Eric Sowah and Theophillus Gyimah, all invigilators, were picked up.

The rest are George Appiah Anane, a supervisor at Trinity School, Jephterm Kwame Nkurmah, supervisor, Richard Gmayasam, invigilator, and Kodia James Smith, assistant supervisor, all at the E.P. Basic School, Felix Ansah, invigilator at the Martyrs of Uganda Basic School, Mamprobi, and Emmanuel Anim Agyapong, a router.

Also arrested was a self-styled WAEC officials Lord Kwesi Gaurvin, who went to the Trinity School while the examination was ongoing and introduced himself to the supervisor as an external official from WAEC.
