The Management of Ignatius Ajuru University of Education (IAUE) has suspended six students for engaging in examination-related offences.
The students, in a statement by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Ozo-mecuri Ndimele, were punished for engaging in impersonation and misconduct during the examination.
One of the affected students, Faith Omie, from the Department of Political Science was said to have hired one Sunday Ajie to write POL 214 for her.
The statement said Ajie was suspended for impersonation following the allegation that he was hired by Omie to write the examination.
