This is to inform members of the public that an account belonging to the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Jos, Professor Seddi Sebastian Maimako on the social media platform ‘Linkedin’ has been hacked.

Professor SS Maimako

Members of the public especially active social media users are, therefore, strongly advised to beware of any solicitation from an account on Linkedin or any other social media platform for that matter, purporting to be that of Professor Seddi Sebastian Maimako. It was observed that the hackers, while impersonating him, have been trying to deceive members of the public with fake messages in a bid to defraud unsuspecting followers of Professor Maimako on the social media.

Professor Maimako has already taken the necessary steps to block the compromised account and has also followed the available protocols in reporting the matter to the online Administrators of Linkedin and other social media platforms.
