He said that when the police arrived at the school, only Sikiru Adeleke was found seated for the examination while Sen. Adeleke’s seat was vacant.

“This crime was facilitated by the principal of the school and two other members of staff of the school for which they are under investigation and being charged to court,” he said.

He said that the school ’s principal, Alhaji Aregbesola Mufutau, the staff responsible for registration, Mr Gbadamosi Thomas Ojo,  and a teacher, Mr Dare Olutope,  were arrested on July 21.
