Magoha however reassured the country of the credibility of the examinations, saying the exposed questions were never accessed by the candidates.

“Although we have been decisive and ruthless in our pursuit of the masterminds of these unethical practice, we regrettably note that some of them are determined to go to any lengths in a bid to expose the contents of the examination papers once they are released in the morning to schools after 6 am,” stated Magoha.
