LASU warns the public against VC impersonators

The attention of the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello, mni, has been drawn to the activities of some criminal elements posing as her (Prof. IbiyemiOlatunji-Bello) to scam unsuspecting members of the public in the guise of giving them jobs or admission. 

Specifically, the phone numbers, 07010826253 and 07083042572 were unscrupulously registered in the name of the VC, Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello, and used to swindle members of the public.

The individual (s) also run several fake social media accounts, on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn bearing the name of the Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello and grow the pages by sending friend requests to other social media users. For the avoidance of doubt, any recently opened social media account in her name is fake. You can identify a new social media page by simply scrolling to the bottom of the page’s posts to see when the first post on the page was made. 

Please note that Prof. Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello will never request for money or gift in exchange for jobs or admission or any favour for that matter. Also, she will never book an appointment via social media.

We encourage members of the general public to assist in getting such contacts and accounts blocked by reporting them on the relevant platforms as we work with law enforcement agents to bring the perpetrators of such criminal acts to book.

We also encourage members of the public to assist in ensuring the number is reported as *Identity Thief* on Truecaller. To do this, take the following steps:
