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

Mr. Kunle Akogun, Deputy Director, Corporate Affairs Department of the university, 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 Aug. 22 and Aug. 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.

Akogun said the institution had neither fixed admission procedure fees nor date for the screening.

He noted that the university was surprised that despite efforts to sanitise the system, some unpatriotic elements still went ahead to defraud members of the public.

He said that the university would employ the appropriate channel to reach out to the admission applicants on the modalities and procedures for the screening.

Akogun, therefore, called on members of the public to be wary of fraudulent individuals who had plotted to use the forthcoming post-UTME screening to swindle them.

He said the university management was working round the clock to reach a compromise on the screening process, assuring that the institution would soon finalise arrangement on the process.

“We have been reaching out to the people on our radio that we have not set guidelines for the admission screening.

“The information going round did not emanate from the University of Ilorin. It was purely the handiwork of racketeers or scammers,” he said. (NAN)
