University of Ilorin, UNILORIN Post-UTME Scam Alert – 2017/2018. The general public, especially candidates seeking admission into the University of Ilorin have been warned to be wary of fraudsters posing to be officials of the University in order to scam unsuspecting candidates.
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.
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 some 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.
