UI warns impersonators of VC-designate on social media
The University of Ibadan (UI) has warned impersonators against opening a dubious Facebook account in the name of its Vice Chancellor-designate, Prof. Kayode Adebowale.
A statement made available to journalists by the university’s Director of Public Communications, Tunji Oladejo, stated: “Information has reached the Vice Chancellor-designate of the premier university that a dubious person has created a Facebook page with Kayode Oyebode Adebowale to solicit favours in his name.
“The dubious person also created an Instagram account in which several people were added.
“These are in addition to the use of a particular telephone number identified as +2347065664894 attached to his name by the questionable individual.
“The person has been calling and inviting people, masquerading as the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ibadan with the photograph of Prof. Adebowale.”
According to the statement, Prof. Adebowale wishes to inform the university community and general public that he has not assigned anyone with such an engagement, meeting and appointment.
“He is yet to resume office and has not been mandated to act as the vice-chancellor.
“He, therefore, dissociates himself from this heinous impersonation and advises the public not to fall prey to any such invitation.”
