The management of the University of Ilorin has alerted members of the public to the latest antics of scammers using fictitious social media accounts created in the name of the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Wahab Egbewole, SAN.

A statement by the management in Ilorin on Thursday, said the rogues use the fake social media platforms like WhatsApp, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Messenger to make all sorts of demands from members of the public, ostensibly in the name of the Vice Chancellor.

“For the avoidance of doubt, Prof. Egbewole does not operate on any of those social media platforms.

“Members of the public should, therefore, be wary of the antics of these unscrupulous elements and be adequately guided not to fall for their pranks,” the management cautioned.
