The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has secured a 20-year jail term against Mr Olanrewaju Kayode, a part-time examiner at The Polytechnic, Ibadan, for committing examination malpractice.
The sentence was handed down by Justice Joyce Abdulmalik of the Federal High Court sitting in Ibadan, Oyo State after having found Kayode guilty of all charges preferred against him.
Olanrewaju Kayode was a part-time examiner who assessed and marked students’ examination scripts of the Department of Accountancy of The Polytechnic, Ibadan.
He had been arraigned by ICPC in June 2016 on a 5-count charge for allegedly collecting various sums of money from five students of the institution and attempting to assist them to alter and secure higher examination scores on different scripts written outside the Examination Hall.
All offences contravened sections 9, 9(2), 9(2a) and 10b of the Examination Malpractices Act, CAP E15 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 1990.
The final judgment against Kayode was secured after the ICPC through Prosecution Counsel, Barrister Aderonke Bisi-Balogun proved beyond a reasonable doubt that he committed all the offences levelled against him.
