EFCC arrests operator of fake degree-awarding college

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC,
Port Harcourt Zonal Office, have arrested a fake school operator
allegedly awarding National Certificate of Education, NCE and Bachelor
of Education degree without authorization and accreditation.

The suspect, John Ogbonnaya, was arrested in Port Harcourt, Rivers
state for allegedly registering Havana International School of Arts and
Science in 2017 with two other suspects: Monday Nwapi and Mrs Justina

They are holding lectures in two centres in Port Harcourt: Brilliant
International Schools, Nsukka Street, Diobu and Paragon City Light
College, Agip area.

Since the inception of the main school, scores of unsuspecting
students have been defrauded and made to pay for application forms,
school fees and project fees.

The students were made to believe that Havana International School of
Arts & Science was affiliated to four different institutions: Abia
State College of Education( Technical); Ebenezer College of Education,
Edda, Ebonyi State, Enugu State College of Education and University of
Calabar, Cross River State.

Investigations by the Commission showed that, Havana International
School of Arts and Science had no valid affiliation with any of the four

The National Commission for Colleges of Education, NCCE, had in 2008
barred all Colleges of Education in Nigeria from operating Satellite
Campuses or Study Centres.

Havana School of Arts and Science allegedly flouted the directive and was operating illegally.

According to the anti-graft agency, the suspect would soon be charged to court.
