Few days into the ongoing West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination, some people have posted purported answers to examination questions on Facebook and asked intending candidates to get in touch with them for WAEC question papers
These fraudsters indicated phone numbers by which they could be contacted.
Our correspondent visited the Facebook page, and saw answers to some of the papers that had already been written.
But it was not clear if the Facebook account holders posted the answers after the exams were written or before, as no question paper was posted.
Also, answers to the Physics paper which was written around 9am on Monday were seen on another social network site.
There were over 10,000 likes on the page with a visitor by name Aminu, saying, “Nice one broz, but remember Government for us, God bless you.”
Two hours to the Chemistry practical which was written on Thursday morning at 9am, the facebook page operator had posted answers which our correspondent could not cross-check with the original paper.
Two students of a senior secondary school in Yaba (names withheld) who were also writing the exams, told our correspondent that aside the social network sites, their colleagues got SMS alert of answers in the exam hall.
A source, who is a graduate of Accountancy from the University of Lagos, said he had gone to report the
facebook leak to the Chief Security Officer of WAEC, Major O. Badejo, (retd).
