File photo: Pupils writing exam

Police in Aflao have begun investigations into the circumstances that led to the head teacher of Kekeli Preparatory School, Innocent Agblevor, allowing 62 foreign pupils to sit for the Basic Education Certificate Examination underway across the country in the name of his school.

The foreign pupils, mainly from Nigeria and Togo, attended a Togo-based Faith Mission School from Junior High School one to Junior High School three, but they were registered as Ghanaian pupils without cumulative records detailing their academic history.

Municipal Chief Executive for Ketu South, Elliot Edem Agbenorwu, who called for the arrest of the head teacher said, they had a tip off from the school and they followed it up.

Crime Inspector of Aflao Police Command, ASP Eric Vondey said they are investigating the suspect for forgery of document.

According to him, the Ghana Education Service rules says candidates are supposed to be in the school for two years before they can be registered for the exam and not one month like what the suspect is alleged to have done.
