The Police Prosecutor, Inspector Innocent Odugbo, told the court on Monday that the defendant committed the offence on May 17 at a private school in Agege, Lagos.

According to him, the defendant scanned a WAEC answer booklet of a student while the examination was still on and sent it on Whatsapp to assist some students.
