Suspected Mastermind Of UNN Post- UTME Leakage Charged To Court


A 23- year old apprentice printer, Chukwuka
Okereke, was yesterday arraigned before
the Federal High Court sitting in Enugu for
allegedly masterminding the leakage of the
University of Nigeria Post-UME question
papers which led to the cancellation of the
examination recently.

Okereke, an apprentice with Cheston
Agency Press Limited, Enugu was arraigned
before Justice D. V. Agishi on a two count
charge of conspiracy and examination
malpractice.

He was arrested by the State Security
Service, SSS, in Enugu about three weeks
ago following a discreet investigation into
the leakage which was described as a major
embarrassment to the university.
A Principal Legal Officer from Enugu State
Ministry of Justice, Mr. Anayo Edeh, alleged
that the accused committed the offence on
or before June 14, about five days to the
examination.

Okereke was said to have conspired with
one Godwin Chukwu, now at large, to
commit examination malpractice contrary to
section 10 (a) and (c) of Examination
Malpractices Act.
The prosecution also alleged that Okereke at
the same time and place, with intent to
secure an unfair advantage for another
person delivered to Godwin Chukwu a
question paper intended to be used for post
JAMB examination at the University of
Nigeria, Nsukka which is contrary to section
1 (b) (2) (c) of the Examination Malpractices
Act.
