The management of University of Calabar (UNICAL) has raised an alarm over intelligence on some examination malpractices by teaching staff in collaboration with students.
According to a memorandum dated Tuesday, August 20, and signed by Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Administration, Professor Michael Peter Okom, some lecturers have been giving students empty examination scripts to fill in answers.
The management described the acts as “obnoxious and abhorrible” acts and promised it would punish students and lecturers found wanting at the end of its investigation.
“It has come to the knowledge of Management that some teaching staff have revived the obnoxious and abhorrible acts of sorting, extortion and sex for grades/sexual harassment,” the memorandum read.
“Some departments and lecturers have been specifically fingered and investigations have commenced. Management also has information to the effect that lecturers have resorted to giving students scripts to write exams at homes, hotels and relaxation places.
“All those involved in these despicable activities are hereby warned to desist and repent. In fact, they will soon be invited to interact with the Disciplinary Committee.”
