He said during the 2018 BECE for private candidates, the complainant was sent to Bogoso as the depot keeper.

The prosecutor said on February 13 while the integrated science paper two was on-going, the complainant saw Andoh who was detailed on duty at the Bogoso Saint Augustine Senior High School taking pictures of portions of the questions with his mobile phone.

The complainant who became alarmed, informed the police and he was subsequently arrested for questioning.

Detective Inspector Amoah said at the police station Andoh admitted the offence in his investigation caution statement.
