UNN Arraign 23-Year-Old Printerover Post-UME Leakage


A 23- year old apprentice printer, Chukwuka
Okereke, was yesterday arraigned before the
Federal High Court sitting in Enugu for
allegedly masterminding the leakage of the
University of Nigeria Post-UME question
papers which led to the cancellation of the
examination recently.
Okereke, an apprentice with Cheston Agency
Press Limited, Enugu was arraigned before
Justice D. V. Agishi on a two count charge of
conspiracy and examination malpractice.
He was arrested by the State Security Service,
SSS, in Enugu about three weeks ago
following a discreet investigation into the
leakage which was described as a major
embarrassment to the university.
A Principal Legal Officer from Enugu State
Ministry of Justice, Mr. Anayo Edeh,
alleged that the accused committed the
offence on or before June 14, about five days
to the examination.
Okereke was said to have conspired with one
Godwin Chukwu, now at large, to commit
examination malpractice contrary to section 10
(a) and (c) of Examination Malpractices Act.
The prosecution also alleged that Okereke at
the same time and place, with intent to secure
an unfair advantage for another person
delivered to Godwin Chukwu a question paper
intended to be used for post JAMB
examination at the University of Nigeria,
Nsukka which is contrary to section 1 (b) (2)
(c) of the Examination Malpractices Act
contrary to section 10 (a) and (c) of
Examination Malpractices Act.
