A 200-level undergraduate at a university in Benin Republic with a fake first degree certificate from another varsity in the same country, has been arrested at the National Youths Service Corps, NYSC orientation camp in Zamfara State.

The suspect simply identified as Rose used a fake degree certificate she procured with money to be part of the exercise but the lid on her crime was blown off last Friday by her schoolmates in the university she is.

Her arrest was confirmed by the NYSC Director-General, Brig. Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, who told Punch: “The clampdown on fake graduates and certificates is yielding more results. On Friday, one of the universities in Cotonou, Benin Republic saw their 200-level student in the NYSC uniform on the social media. She is supposed to be a 200-level of the university studying journalism.

“But she went and purchased a fake certificate from another Benin Republic university and now served in the camp in Zamfara. So, her classmates saw her on the social media and raised the alarm to the university, which then alerted and wrote me.”
