The University of Ilorin in collaboration with six other Nigerian universities have developed home-grown anti-plagiarism software, designed to check academic fraud.

According to the University Bulletin issued on Monday, the other universities are Al-Hikmah University, Ilorin and Covenant University, Ota.
Others are Delta State University Abraka, Benue State University Makurdi, University of Jos and Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-Ife.
According the publication the software programme development was at the instance of the Association of Vice-Chancellors of Nigerian Universities (AVCNU).
The publication said this would develop the home-grown anti-plagiarism software with the local repository.
It quoted the Director, Computer Services and Information Technology (COMSIT), Directorate of the University of Ilorin, Prof. Mohammed Ahmed, as saying the software was at 80 per cent completion.
Ahmed added that using local human resource to develop the software has helped to cut down cost and show the ingenuity of Nigerians.
He explained that the software has both local and global repository with features such as peer review, document comparison, and grammar checker.
Ahmed said when operational, the anti-plagiarism application, would be made available to all Nigerian universities.
