UNICAL warns against those impersonating VC on social media

The University of Calabar has warned members of the public to be wary of corn-artists and unscrupulous elements impersonating the institution’s Vice Chancellor, Prof. Florence Banku Obi
on various social media platforms.

A Statement issued by the Public Relations Office of the University, cautioned unsuspecting members of the public to desist from doing business with anyone on social media masquerading as the Vice Chancellor, saying anyone who falls prey to the antics of impersonators does so at his or her own risk.

According to the Statement, the institution and by extension the Vice Chancellor will not condescend to the level of asking for financial gratifications of any kind from anyone on social media.

While debunking the false claim by serial and unrepentant fraudsters on social media that the Federal Government had approved the supply of HP Laptops to the institution, the statement added that there is nothing of such, maintaining that, it is a calculated attempt to defraud people of their hard earned money.

Specifically, the statement further warned that a certain impersonator with the WhatsApp number 09136530445 is on various social media platforms promising to award contracts to some unsuspecting members of the public.

Members of the public are therefore enjoined to ignore chats and messages from the number, as such messages did not emanate from the Vice Chancellor.
