The Management of Gregory University Uturu, GUU, has issued a scam alert, warning members of the public not to fall victim of a syndicate extorting money from unsuspecting candidates under the guise of offering them admission into the university.
A statement by the Deputy Registrar, Communication and Strategies, Rev. Sleek Ogwo, disowned the syndicate who he said had since been reported to security agencies for necessary actions.
Below is a full text of the press statement made available to Ikengaonline:
“The public is hereby alerted of the fraudulent activities of one Dr Mrs Stella B Dennis, who is currently deploying telephone number 09125210477 and email address ‘Academicsesession.email@example.com,’ to defraud innocent people of various sums of money in exchange for fake admission letters to Gregory University Uturu.
“Sequel to this ugly development, Management of Gregory University Uturu wishes to reinstate the obvious fact that, in keeping with our established tradition, all protocols for admission into the institution for the forthcoming 2023/2024 academic session will be conducted either in person at the university campus, which is located at Amaokwe Achara Uturu, or via our official portal: www.gregoryuniversityuturu.edu.ng.
“Subsequently, members of the public are advised to disregard all solicitations from faceless individuals, groups and organizations whose stock in trade is to fraudulently obtain monies from unsuspecting people, but rather report such activities to law enforcement agents.
“Management has therefore petitioned appropriate security agencies on these nefarious activities as arrangements are being completed to formally open the admission window for the 2023/2024 academic session.Please be properly guided.”
