The statement warned parents and admission seekers to be wary of fraudsters.
It explained that cut-off marks have not also been released by the university management.
It read in part, “The attention of the management of the University of Ilorin has been drawn to a statement currently trending on some social media platforms to the effect that the university has announced the date and procedure for the screening of admission candidates for the 2017/2018 admission exercise.
“The purported announcement even went as far as directing admission seekers to a phantom website on which to upload their eligibility details.
“We want to state categorically that the University of Ilorin is yet to commence any screening for the 2017/2018 admission exercise. In fact, we are yet to release the cut-off marks for this year’s admission exercise.
“The online announcement is the handiwork of scammers and 419ers who are bent on taking advantage of the anxious admission seekers to fleece them of huge sums of money.”
The university management subsequently urged admission seekers to ensure confirmation of announcements on the university’s website.
It added, “Perceptive members of the public ought to know, even from the headline of the statement, that such can never emanate from the University of Ilorin.
“We, therefore, warn all admission seekers and their parents/guardians to exercise patience and wait for the official release of screening instruction by the university.
“They should be wary of falling cheaply for the antics of scammers.” SHARE YOUR STORY WITH US VIA EMAIL: INFO@247NIGERIANEWSUPDATE.CO RECEIVE NEWS VIA OUR WHATSAPP, KINDLY TEXT +234 701 056 0394 TO ADD YOU CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL FOR NEWS UPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON TWITTER FOR INSTANT NEWS UPDATE: @247NGNEWSUPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN MILLIONS AROUND THE GLOBE TO READ NEWS ON OUR FACEBOOK FAN PAGE FOR INSTANT UPDATES ON INSTAGRAM CLICK HERE RECEIVE INSTANT NEWS UPDATE VIA OUR BBM BROADCAST: D3EDEFDF PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
