Security operatives on Saturday arrested two identical twins, Hussain and Hassan Andulhammeed for alleged examination malpractice in the ongoing Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), at the University of Maiduguri centre, Borno State.
Chief Examiner Officer in the state, Mr. Babagana Gutti, disclosed this to newsmen saying Hussain passed himself off as Hassan who was supposed to sit for the exam.
Explaining, Gutti said Hussain tried to sit for the examination on behalf of his brother, and had tricked invigilators and security personnel to gain entrance to the centre. But the bubble burst when the security operatives and invigilators found them out.
He said, “We do not suspect foul play until one of the invigilators noticed the other identical twin outside the examination hall. “The invigilator became curious and asked him few questions; but not satisfied with answers he put them together for verification.
“It is unfortunate our findings showed that he was in the examination hall in place of his brother.”
