The Sekyere South District Police Commander, ASP Owusu Poku, said the suspect has been cautioned and released on a service enquiry bail.

Issues of examination malpractice have been topical in Ghana recently, after Africa Education Watch, an education think tank, uncovered a cartel that distribute question and answers on social media.

National security operatives arrested a leader of the cartel at Kasoa in the Central Region. Two teachers who were also arrested in the Oti Region are also serving a three-month jail term for committing a similar offence.
