“The results of 289 candidates alleged to have been involved in various cases of examination malpractice have been withheld, pending the conclusion of investigations into the cases of malpractice. These malpractices include collusion, impersonation, bringing foreign materials, including mobile phones, into the examination hall and seeking external assistance among others.

“The withheld results of candidates will be released or cancelled based on the outcome of investigations,” it said.

“Candidates are to note that WAEC’s results database is well-secured and all results can be authenticated.
