DISCLAIMER: BSU Vice-Chancellor Disowns Social Media Accounts

It has come to the attention of Management of Benue State University that some fraudsters have opened some social media accounts (WhatsApp and Facebook) with the view to defraud members of the public through promise of contract awards and employment.

To entice unsuspecting members of the public to their trap, the fraudsters have created a pseudo conversation engagement between the Vice-Chancellor and some imposters as contractors taking advice from the Vice-Chancellor on how to submit quotations or bid successfully for various items.

One of such fake Facebook accounts has been opened using a mobile telephone number +2348133826128.
In view of this, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Tor Joe Iorapuu has alerted members of the public to disregard any such contents on social media so as not to fall prey to the sinister motives of the scammers.

For the avoidance of doubt, the university is not conducting any employment exercise at the moment and even when it is to be done, such advertisements must be done using formal channels and not just social media. Additionally, monetary conditions are not attached to either employment or admission cases as these cheats would like the public to think.

In the same vein, advertisement of tenders for contract awards by the University, particularly those of TETfund, are published in the Federal Tenders Journal, the University website and other Traditional media channels.

Meanwhile, the University has alerted the relevant security agencies and mobile Networks to use relevant tools at their disposal to arrest the miscreants and treat these cases in accordance with provisions in the relevant laws.
