Teachers at an Islamic senior high school in Ghana, have been arrested for allegedly trying to leak a paper. These two teachers at the Ahamanso Islamic Senior High School were arrested by the Kadjebi District Police for attempting to leak Monday's English Language paper.

Mr Musah Mohammed, who is a teacher was caught red-handed by an external supervisor from the West African Examination Council (WAEC), who is reportedly called Ephraim Nukpertsi. Upon reaching the examination centre, Mr Ephraim Nukpertsi saw Musah Mohammed, taking pictures of the examination question paper with his phone. The 33 year old man was caught by the external supervisor taking these pictures with his Tecno Spark 4 smart phone.

Mr Musah Mohammed is a Mathematics teacher who was tasked to invigilate students at the exams centre on 13th September. He did the cheating with his colleague named Felix Ocloo, a 32-year old man who is also an English Language teacher. Reportedly, this English teacher compelled his friend to take the pictures.

Both of them were arrested and put before the Kadjebi District Magistrates Court on Wednesday. Musah Mohammed pleaded guilty to the offence, so he was sentenced to 65 penalty units. Thus, serve three months in prison with hard labour.

Felix Ocloo, Musah Mohammed's colleague pleaded not guilty to the charge. However, he has been scheduled to appear again before court on the 11th of October 2021 for the hearing of his case.

Meanwhile, the West African Examination Council (WAEC) has made it known that, Physics 2 and 1, and Business Management 2 and 1 papers, have been rescheduled for candidates writing those papers in the ongoing West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for candidates.

Mr George Ohene-Mantey, Head of Test Administration Division of WAEC said, “A new date for the scheduled papers will be communicated in due course,”. He made this statement at a press conference in Accra on Wednesday.

Although reasons for the rescheduling of these papers were not mentioned, Mr Ohene-Mantey claimed that after the administration of the test and careful scrutiny of the several versions received, indications were that “extract of part of the questions for Mathematics (Elective) 2 and Section ‘A’ English Language 2 were circulated on some social media platforms.”

He continued, saying, “the cheating social media groups were in full swing prior to the conduct of the Mathematics (Elective) and English Language Papers on September 9th and 13, this year respectively.”
