Again: police Arrest 32 years oldman that hack Waec website and post answers online.

A 31- year-old man, Akharamen Ehizokhai,
alleged to have hacked into the website of the

been arrested by the Edo State Police

The alleged fraudster was said to have opened a
website where he posted fake questions and
answers of Senior School Certificate
Examination (SSCE) for candidates on agreed

Akharamen Ehizokhai
He allegedly charged per subject and had been
involved in the illicit deal for two years. On the
internet, the suspect allegedly collected N5,000
per subject.

Some of the students who got in touch with the
suspect were said to have been directed to pay
into a bank account with the name Akharamen
Ehizokhai Favour.

Following persistent reports by parents and
candidates over the alleged fraudulent activities
of the suspect in Edo and neighbouring states,
crack detectives from the Edo Command were
detailed to trail him.

Consequently, he was
arrested in Ekpoma.

He was paraded by the Edo State Commissioner
of Police, Funso Adebanjo. The suspect
admitted to have committed the crime, saying
the purpose was to make money by defrauding
unsuspecting WAEC candidates.

According to him, “ I have been into this
business for some time now and it is because I
have no other means of livelihood. I am sorry
and I want God to help me out of this problem”.

Adebanjo described the suspect as the leader of
a syndicate that tracks various websites of
institutions in the country. “He has been into
this business for over a year as we gathered
and his activities have frustrated many
candidates who wanted to pass exams through
quick means. We got information about him
trailed him.
This is another 419 and because a lot of our
children these days don’t want to read for
exams they fall victims. I want to use this
opportunity to advise students to read their
books or face failure.

And it is also unfortunate that sometimes
parents indulge in this illicit act by giving their
children money to pay people like this. This is
wrong and that is why we are noticing lots of
failures these days in examinations and that is
not good for our country. Parents must resist
the temptation of ensuring that their children
pass exams by all means so that we will put this
kind people out of job. We are going to charge
him to court for fraud”.

Parading 32 other suspects, Adebanjo stated
that five were arrested for robbery, nine for
stealing, two for cultism and unlawful
possession of firearm, one for abduction and
two for fraud. The Police Commissioner listed
the items recovered from the suspects to
include 12 guns, five live ammunition, 67
cartridges, seven laptop computers and two
