The Ondo State University of Science and Technology (OSUSTECH) , Okitipupa, said on Thursday that it had arrested a candidate for impersonation at its 2013/2014 computer-based Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.
Prof. Amos Akinwande, the institution’s Director of Academic Planning said Okitipupa that the suspect had been handed over to the police.
“The security operatives arrested him because his document and passport photograph did not correspond with what we have on our website and he has been handed over to the police,” he said.
Akinwande said the suspect was arrested for impersonation out of the 501 candidates that took part in the examination.
“Candidates were now conversant with the e-screening exercise. It was not to fail anyone but to fight against moral and educational decadence in tertiary institutions,” he said.
Akinwande stressed that candidates who did not score the 180 cut-off marks would not be offered admission into the institution, adding that the results would be released on September 13.
Kingley Emidun, a candidate, said that he was impressed with the conduct of the examination, saying that the candidates were tutored on how to use the computer without stress.
“I am impressed with the way we were guided with the computer. They also conveyed us with their vehicles from the main gate to the examination hall,’’ Emidun said.
Mrs Oluwatoyin Idowu, a parent, said that security men were alert to forestall any criminal act, adding that the institution’s management created a friendly environment for candidates.
