The Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO) has released a disclaimer notice on admission and employment. Details are as follows;
The attention of the Management of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO) has been drawn to a series of scamming attempts using the name of the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. (Mrs.) Nnenna Nnannaya Oti. The scamming attempts cover a range of activities aimed at duping unsuspecting members of the public. Scammers have gone as far as opening a Facebook page in her name and dropped a WhatsApp number there with which unsuspecting people communicate with scammers thinking they were communicating with the VC. They make all sorts of promises such as the offer of admission and employment, connection with Abuja for an appointed position, etc. The scammers then attempt to solicit and extort money from the people through any means or to lure people to a meeting with the “VC” at their specified locations.
THE GENERAL PUBLIC BEWARE!!!
The Management wishes to use this medium to dissociate itself from such activities and do hereby state categorically as follows:
- The University Management and Administration are NEVER involved in any form of such acts of solicitation and deceit.
- Admissions and Employment in the University follow due process.
- The Vice-Chancellor DOES NOT invite anybody for a meeting at any location or venue.
- The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. (Mrs.) Nnenna Nnannaya Oti does not have multiple Facebook accounts and pages and has NOT put out any Contact Details on any social media platform. Hence, anybody interested in contacting the University should visit the University Website.
Whosoever patronizes the Scammers does so at his or her own risk.
