- Student caught with exam script with Abia lawmaker’s names and registration number
A 4th year law student of the Abia State University, ABSU, Hackney Chidera, has been arrested in connection with exam script of Hon. Ginger Onwusibe’s name, a member representing Isiala Ngwa North State Constituency in the Abia House of Assembly.
The incident which happened on Friday when year 2 law students of ABSU were taking constitutional law 224 a course being handled by Dr. ACB Agbazuere.
Hackney Chidera was caught by the invigilators when he was about to submit an exam script with Hon. Ginger Onwusibe’s names and registration numbers written on it.
One of the invigilators who spoke to us on account of anonymity said “they got suspicious when they saw the names of the member representing Isiala Ngwa North State Constituency in the Abia House of Assembly Hon. Ginger Onwusibe who also happens to be a 2nd year law student of ABSU in the exam attendance sheet
“But we discovered that he was not physically present, that was why we decided to cross check every exam script being submitted and we discovered that the script one Hackney Chidera submitted belonged to Hon. Onwusibe that was how we apprehended him and hand him over to the security men on duty, on further interrogation by the security men.
He disclosed that he has been the one writing exams for Hon. Onwusibe since his year one in the law faculty and that he was also contracted by the Honourable member to sit for this very exam before he was caught.
However, the security men informed our reporter that the matter is now before the head of Law faculty Prof. Erugo whom we discovered is not showing seriousness on prosecuting the lawmaker but rather his actions suggests that he has been compromised and is now taking sides with Hon. Ginger Onwusibe.
Our attempts to reach the Vice chancellor Prof. Ikonne was not successful as he was said not be on seat as at the time we got to the school, but our repeated calls and text messages to Prof. Erugo was not responded to.
We are aware that Prof. Ikonne and the school senate does not take exam practices lightly and we will keep close monitor on the situation to ensure that justice is done and the culprits will be punished accordingly.
