According to the victims, they paid their tuition fees of 1,600 cedis, SRC dues 30 cedis and their index fees 45 cedis to the suspect to be paid to the schools account and the receipt submitted to the schools accounts unit due to the distance between the school and the commercial bank.

Latifa who had a motorbike volunteered to facilitate the payment of fees for these students at no charge.

She, however, failed to undertake the legal transactions but issued the students with fake bank receipts.

Latifa's dubious deeds was however exposed when the school authorities asked students to submit their receipt of payment before allowing entry into the exam hall on Friday.
