Unmasked during the English test

The student, whose age has not been disclosed, had moved to Diourbel to take the bac exams in place of his girlfriend, a student in a high school in this city, according to the prosecution.

Photos posted on social networks show him wearing a red dress with black patterns, wearing a veil in the same colors and a black shawl, to deceive the vigilance of the examiners.

He was surprised on Saturday, on the third day of the bac exam, during the English test, by the supervisors, who according to the press, noticed that something was wrong with his outfit.

The latter then reported him to the police who arrested him the same day as well as his girlfriend who was waiting for him in an inn in the city, according to the same source.
