Unilorin warns admission seekers against social media scammers
The management of the University of Ilorin, Kwara, has warned the public against scammers utilising various social media platform to scam admission seekers into the institution.
In a statement Thursday by the Director of Corporate Affairs, University of Ilorin, Kunle Akogun, the school said there was a social media post by someone who calls himself ‘Onikunkewu of Unilorin’, entitled “Quick Info To All Aspirants of Unilorin”.
“We want to warn candidates seeking admission to this University that this fellow is not known to the University of Ilorin and he is, therefore, not acting on our behalf.
“He is most likely out to defraud unsuspecting admission seekers and so his post should be disregarded,” the university spokesperson said.
According to him, the University of Ilorin has well-known channels of communicating with admission applicants and definitely the anonymous writer named “Onikunkewu” is not one of them.
