The statement said, “Kayode was a part-time examiner, who assessed and marked students’ examination scripts at the Department of Accountancy of The Polytechnic, Ibadan.

“He was arraigned by the ICPC in June 2016 on five counts for allegedly collecting sums of money from five students of the institution and attempting to assist them to alter and secure higher examination scores on different scripts written outside the examination hall.
   

   
“All the offences contravened sections 9, 9(2), 9(2a) and 10b of the Examination Malpractices Act, CAP E15, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 1990.

“The final judgment against Kayode was secured after the ICPC, through the prosecution counsel, Aderonke Bisi-Balogun, proved beyond reasonable doubt that he committed all the offences levelled against him. The sentence was handed down by Justice Abdulmalik, having found Kayode guilty of all the charges preferred against him.”
   

   
The ICPC added that in handing down the judgment, Justice Abdulmalik stated that the convict was to serve four-year jail term for each of the five counts, bringing the total to 20 years’ imprisonment.

The judge said Kayode’s sentence was to run concurrently from June 20, 2016, when he was first arrested.
