ACC SCORPION SQUAD RAIDS AND ARRESTS PROPRIETOR OF SCHOOL AND PUPILS WRITING WASSCE EXAMS IN PRIVATE HOME

NEWS ITEM

The Scorpion Squad of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), on the morning hours of Thursday 2nd June 2022, executed a search and arrested the Proprietor of the Moses Academy International School, Ibrahim Turay and eleven candidates writing the West Africa School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) at the No 8 Turay Drive, Deep-eye Water private residence of the proprietor.

The Scorpion Squad acted on intelligence that the said pupils were writing the mathematics examination at the said residence with the aid of a student of Njala University.

The Njala University student was answering the maths questions for the candidates who were in plain clothes instead of the uniform of the school they were registered to take the exams.

The elite ACC team arrested the proprietor of the school and the eleven candidates writing the examination inside the building after a standoff that was meant to prevent the ACC from gaining access into the building.

The proprietor of the school and the eleven WASSCE candidates are helping the Commission with the investigations.

This development came in spite of the several warnings issued by the ACC for members of the public, especially candidates for public examinations, examiners, invigilators, school authorities and teachers to desist from such acts of examination malpractices.
