*DO YOU KNOW THAT EXAMINATION MALPRACTICE HAS BEEN A CRIME IN NIGERIA SINCE 1983. * DAILY LAW TIPS (Tip 297) By Onyekachi Umah, Esq., LLM. ACIArb(UK).

Not minding the incessant cases of cheating and examination malpractices in schools across Nigeria, examination malpractice has been a federal crime in Nigeria since 1983. The law extends cheating at examination to include even acts done before an examination in anticipation of an examination or at an examination. It also extends to children and adults, as well as teachers and any other person that aids in cheating at an examination.
The above offence is punishable with imprisonment for not more than 10 years.

My authorities are sections 1(16) and 5 of the Miscellaneous Offences Act, 1983.

DAILY LAW TIPS
by Onyekachi Umah,Esq.
(Tip 260)
“CAN AN ARRESTED PERSON BE MEDICAL EXAMINED WITHOUT CONSENT”

Police or any other government owned security agency has right to arrest any person and medically examine such person without consent of the arrested person for needed evidence. The police can even use reasonable force where necessary in conducting such medical examination. Note that the medical examination must be conducted by a qualified medical practitioner or professional with needed skills.

My authorities are sections 11, 494 and 495 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015 and other similar laws across States in Nigeria.
