Over 20 students of the University of Ghana, Legon, are currently in custody at the Bureau of National Investigation (BNI) for attempting to hack into the university’s records system to change their grades.

The students were arrested after a thorough investigation into their conduct by the university, StarrFMonline.com sources hinted.

This was revealed by the Vice Chancellor of University of Ghana Prof. Ebenezer Oduro Owusu when he addressed a group of students during the Palm Sunday.

The University regularly conducts an audit into the grades and certificates submitted on admission by students. In the past, students have been penalized and even dismissed for applying to the school with fraudulent  documents.

Application fraud is a common practice among the various universities in the country.
