Information seeping in at press time yesterday indicated that the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) had busted two heads of schools at Akim Akropong, in the Atiwa District of the Eastern Region, for allegedly engaging in examination malpractices during the re-writing of five papers in the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), which were cancelled a couple of weeks ago.
The suspects, Comfort Oduro Yeboah, 56, headmistress of Akropong Presby ‘A’ Junior High School and George Amoako, 50-year-old head teacher of Awenare D/A Junior High School, were in the custody of the Kyebi Divisional Police Command assisting in investigations.
DAILY GUIDE sources asserted that on Monday, at about 10:20 am when the candidates had begun writing the English Language Paper 2, the suspects allegedly took one of the question papers and sent it to a room near the school, apparently to solve the questions and pass the answers on to the candidates.
According to the sources, the BNI officer who was on duty detected the move, traced the suspects to the room where he spotted them busily solving the questions and were arrested with the help of one police officer. They were sent to the Kyebi police station and put behind bars.
The Kyebi Divisional Crime Officer, DSP Emmanuel Issaka, confirming the incident to DAILY GUIDE, said the suspects were in custody assisting in investigations. He added that they would be processed for court for prosecution after investigations had been completed.
