Four candidates writing the ongoing Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations have been arrested by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) for vandalising a Computer Based Test Centre (CBT) at Otuoke, hometown of former President Goodluck Jonathan in Bayelsa state.
The four male suspects who were arrested at a Computer-Based Test Centre in Federal University, Otuoke, were accused of disrupting the smooth exercise at the centre and destroying some properties on Tuesday June 22.
The State Commandant of the Corps, Mrs Christiana Abiakam-Omanu said the suspects were allowed to participate in the examination before they were arrested.
Reiterating that NSCDC will not tolerate vandalism of government infrastructure, Omanu added that investigation is ongoing to unravel other suspects to make them face the full weight of the law.
The four suspects who admitted committing the offence, regretted their actions and appealed for leniency from the government.
