10 university students, others arrested for writing WASSCE for candidates
This comes barely a day after 10 University students were also arrested by the Akim Oda Police for allegedly writing exams for some candidates of the PLACID International School in the Birim Central Municipality in the Eastern Region in the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
The ten, comprising five women and five men, were spotted by an examiner at the centre who suspected that they were not students of the school.
