A failure to pay the fine will result in a six months prison sentence slapped on the suspect.

The suspect was grabbed on September 8, 2018, at Bekwai Roman Catholic Basic School Examination center, where he was impersonating one Isaac Baah to write the Mathematics paper of WASSCE NOV/DEC exams.

According to sources, he wrote the exam with the index number 1059523551, which belonged to Baah, who had registered for the exams.

YEN.com.gh understands that the Bekwai WAEC monitoring team went to Bekwai Catholic Basic school Examination center on inspection of candidates writing the NOV/DEC – WASSCE exams, where they discovered the illegality.

They found the suspect writing a paper and upon inspection and verification, realized that his photograph differed from that of Baah.

He was consequently arrested and handed over to the police, for criminal investigations to commence. Mensah has since admitted the offence and has been accordingly charged.
