However, not-so-alarming number of of students’ records, phones and ID documents were tempered with.

The National Crime Agency (NCA) claims that the school suffered a complication in the system that resulted into the crime.

Talking about how to resolve it, a Spokesperson of the NCA said;

“A criminal investigation led by the NCA’s National Cyber Crime Unit is now under way, and it would not be appropriate to comment further at this stage.”
