The College of Education, Akwanga in the Akwanga Local Government Area of Nasarawa State, has expelled 23 of its students for engaging in examination malpractice during its first semester examinations of the 2020/2021 session.

Some of the affected students include Ajowu Samson Ochoche, Karya Cosmos Ichivirter, Waziri Zalaini Muh’d, Aliyu Rabi’u Dogo, Peter ThankGod Manga, Kabiru Usman Omaku, Likita Ezekiel Ozigi, Jonah Bitrus Agu, Abubakar Abdulmajid Aliyu.

Confirming the incident to our correspondent, the institution’s Public Relations Officer, Mustapha Ibrahim, said that the students were expelled as a result of examination malpractice by a committee set up by the institution’s academy board.

He said, “All the students appeared before the Examination Malpractices Committee which was set up by the school’s  Academic Board for the 2020/2021 first semester examination and after they were found guilty of the offences, they were expelled in line with the guidelines in the Students’ Information Handbook.

“The students were told to hand over their identity cards and any other college property in their possession to the Chief Security Officer and vacate the college premises with immediate effect.”
