A Senegalese student has been arrested for fraud after allegedly impersonating a woman and passing a high school girl exam, her lawyer said Tuesday.
The girlfriend has been arrested too.
All are due to appear in court in this West African country on Thursday for fraud and fraudulent involvement, lawyer Serigne Ndiongue said. The suspects oppose the allegations.
Pictures that have gone viral are showing the student wearing a red dress and black shawl.
Local media reported that supervisors arrested him on the third day of the exam after seeing something wrong with his attire. Then they reported it to the police.
