An examiner identified as Sylvester Okiemute caught a final year female student of the Department of Library and Information Science, Delta State University, Abraka, with “expo materials” during an examination on Friday, August 28.
It was gathered that the student was caught while sitting for an exam on entrepreneurship and information services.
The examiner, who was sure that the student was making reference to a paper she smuggled in, asked her to hand over the paper, she denied which led to a shouting match between the examiner and the student.
The examiner dipped his hands into her private part and recovered the incriminating materials, The Punch reports.
According to a source, who narrated the incident on condition of anonymity, said the student was earlier caught by another examiner and she pleaded with the examiner, who later pardoned her.
She was reportedly given another answer sheet to start over, but was caught again, 45 minutes later.
The university Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Victor Peretomode, confirming the incident said the university had declared total war on illegality and examination malpractices.
He warned that any student, no matter how highly placed, found to be involved in examination malpractices would be shown the way out.
