Beware of fraudsters, UNILORIN warns candidates

The University of Ilorin has warned candidates seeking admission into the institution for the 2016/2017 session not to fall victim of fraudsters asking for screening fees.

Deputy Director, Corporate Affairs Department of the university, Mr Kunle Akogun, gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday.

Akogun said that the recently circulated post-UTME procedures slated for August 22 and August 27 was a scam.

“I am not aware of any circular from the university management to this effect. The circular is a scam. It should be disregarded,” Akogun said.

He pointed out that the institution was aware of the misleading information and considered it imperative to alert unsuspecting members of the public and applicants seeking admission into the institution.

The university spokesman said some admission seekers had fallen victims of the dubious information asking them for payment of screening fees, stating that the institution had neither fixed admission procedure fees nor date for the screening.
