The Rivers State Ministry of Education says it has suspended Principal of Community Secondary School, Borokiri, PortHarcourt over alleged West African Senior Secondary School (WASSCE) racketeering.
Professor Chinedu Mmom, Education Commissioner made the disclosure on Wednesday to Journalists shortly after parents of students of the school who were excluded from writing the exams visited his office.
Professor Mmom said he has also deployed another Principal to resume in the school immediately.
According to the Education Commissioner, the Principal agreed in the presence of Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Borokiri Police Division that he short changed some students of the school for external candidates he collected money from.
Professor Mmom also revealed that he has urged the DPO to detain the Principal for investigation.
