No fewer than six female students, one of them a final year student of the department of Library and Information Science, Delta State University, Abraka (DELSU) were last Friday caught with the use of “expo materials” during examination in the hall.
The University authorities in the wake of pervasive examination malpractices had set up disciplinary committees, especially within examiners to monitor during examination conduct students and uncover those behind fraudulent activities.
But these committees last Friday swung into action when an examiner identified as Sylvester Okiemute in what could be described as a show of shame caught a female final year student identified as Oghenero (surname withheld) of the department of Library and Information Science with incriminating materials during examination.
Although there have been several of the students uncovered with incriminating materials since the examination began, but our informed sources said that the incident occurred while the students were writing a course called ‘Entrepreneurship and Information Services’ when suddenly the suspect was sighted by the examiner with his eagle eyes and was asked to stand up, before asking her to bring out the materials she was using, rather the girl insisted that she was not in possession of any of such materials.
It was reliably gathered that in what looks like a cross fire between the suspect and the examiner degenerated into a shouting match: a situation the examiner allegedly moved into her in anger and dip his hands into her private part while he brought out the incriminating materials.
Our source who narrated the incident on condition of anonymity said that the examiner had been observing the defaulting student from a distance and so was certain he saw her with the materials as he continued to pressurize her to bring out the incriminating materials as all efforts proved abortive before he allegedly pounced on her.
