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 419 ers 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. ”
