Identical twins arrested for examination malpractice during UTME in Borno

Identical twins who wanted to take the advantage of the examiners during the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) were arrested yesterday in Borno State, at the University of Maiduguri centre, for examination malpractice.

The lookalike brothers identified as Hussain and Hassan Andulhammeed, tricked invigilators and security personnel to gain entrance to the centre. One of them tried to sit for the examination on behalf of the other.

One of the twin brothers, Hussain Andulhammeed, was captured in the biometric registration for the Computer Base Test (CBT) but his other twin brother, Hassan, took advantage of their resemblance and sat for the examination in place of his brother.

He was arrested by the vigilant invigilators.
