DISCLAIMER ON FAKE ADMISSION MESSAGES
The attention of Management of the University of Jos has been drawn to text messages apparently being sent by fraudsters for the purpose of defrauding prospective candidates applying for admission into the University.
The text messages claim that such candidates have been shortlisted for admission for the 2021/2022 Academic Session and are therefore requested to pay various sums of money ranging from Thirty Thousand Naira (N30,000) to Fifty Thousand Naira (N50,000) as cost of so called “miscellaneous” charges. The candidates are then directed to pay the money to a certain Kim Davou through a Fidelity Bank Account Number 6040327797.
Management wishes to state categorically that the University of Jos has not mandated any person or vendor to solicit or collect any charges on its behalf and anyone doing so is doing it illegally. The University is currently conducting an online screening exercise for candidates who applied for admission into the institution for the 2021/2022 Academic Session and has not yet shortlisted any candidate for Merit Admission or any other category of Admission for the 2021/2022 Session.
All candidates seeking admission into the University’s Undergraduate and Postgraduate Programmes as well as members of the public are advised to always seek guidance for any admission exercise via the University’s website www.unijos.edu.ng, University’s Radio Station ICE FM 96.1 or other authorized University channels of communication.
