They began to investigate the issue, and at one point, she was asked to remove her wig for further investigation.

Luckily, she was proven innocent of impersonation and finally allowed to write her examination after much delay.

Winifred captioned the video:

"You almost wasn't allowed to write your exams cause your school thought you were impersonating a boy after looking at your school portal picture. They literally asked me to remove my wig. By the way that image is already 5 years old."
