The management of Landmark University in Omu-Aran, Kwara State, has raised the alarm over activities of fraudsters who are swindling some unsuspecting parents who want their children to pass the university’s examinations at all costs.
The registrar of the university, Dr. Azubuike Ezenwoke made this known in a disclaimer notice sent out to parents and guardians of the institution, in which he warned them to beware of the development.
According to the registrar, the fraudsters ask the parents to pay money into private account numbers to help their wards make good grades or manipulate results.
Ezenwoke warned the parents that such request did not emanate from the management or any member of the staff and so, they should ignore such request.
The registrar’s notice read; “It has come to the notice of Management that some fraudulent individuals are asking Landmark parents to pay certain amount of money into private account numbers to help their wards make good grades or manipulate results.
“Such individuals claim they are either the Chief Examination Officer or a Staff from Examinations and Records.
“Please be informed that this request neither emanates from Management nor any member of our Faculty and Staff.
“We therefore advise our esteemed parents to ignore any such requests to avoid being swindled. Landmark has very clear protocol for result redress and this does NOT involve asking parents for money”.
