The Imo State Polytech­nic, Umuagwo, has ex­pelled eight stu­dents and sanc­tioned 22 oth­ers over ex­am­i­na­tion mal­prac­tice and other of­fences.

A state­ment is­sued by the man­age­ment through the Pub­lic Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer of the in­sti­tu­tion Mr. Darlington Oparaocha, said the ex­pelled stu­dents were caught in acts which are ca­pa­ble of de­stroy­ing lives and property of staff and stu­dents of the polytech­nic.

He added that the 22 stu­dents who were sanc­tioned were ap­pre­hended with ex­ter­nal ma­te­ri­als in ex­am­i­na­tion halls, adding that they were all made to sign un­der­tak­ing never to in­dulge in such act.

The in­sti­tu­tion warned staff and lec­tur­ers against ex­am­i­na­tion mal­prac­tice.

Mean­while, 147 stu­dents of the in­sti­tu­tion have been ad­vised to ei­ther re­peat the ses­sion or with­draw from their pro­grammes.

It was gath­ered that mem­bers of the aca­demic board gave the ad­vice based on the stu­dents per­for­mances.
