West African Examination Council (WAEC) has arrested ten supervisors presiding over its ongoing Senior Secondary School Examination (SSCE).
The arrests were made in Lagos, Kano, Bayelsa and Kaduna states.
Head of WAEC office in Nigeria, Patrick Areghan announced this while monitoring the conduct of the examination at some of the centres on Thursday in Lagos.
Acording to Areghan, those arrested allowed some of the candidates writing the examination to enter the examination halls with telephones, snap the question papers, and post them on specified platforms.
He alleged that some of the ten supervisors are members of syndicated groups who are administering the platforms.
Areghan expressed concern that only a handful of the supervisors are trustworthy.
