The management of the University of Nigeria Nsukka has expelled two students over examination malpractice (impersonation to be exact).
This was made known in a memo from the University’s Registrar.
The memo partly reads:
This is to inform you that Senate, at its 407th Meeting held on Wednesday 30th June 2021, considered its paper 405/17 which contained the recommendations of its examination malpractice committee, and approved that the underlisted two students should be expelled from the university having been found guilty of impersonation under Category “A: offence, in line with Chapter 3.9 of the Undergraduate Academic Regulations.
Okorie, Success (2015/203688) – Department of Political Science
Oparaeke Akwaugo (2016/231502) – Department of Sociology and Anthropology
You are requested to take action in line with the above decision of the Senate and inform all concerned accordingly.
Summary of What Actually Happened:
Success failed a course and asked Oparaeke to write it for her the next year. Unfortunately, Oparaeke was caught. The issue was sent to the disciplinary committee and they were both expelled from the University.
When the expulsion decision was taken, Oparaeke was in her final year while Success had an extra year.
Information to the affected students: While this might be devastating, we feel your pain and encourage you to move on. Yes, what you did was wrong, but you can still make it right by desisting from social vices. We sincerely do wish you success in any good thing you do. Don’t let this blow stop you from shining.
