Beware Of Admission Racketeers, UNIBEN Warns Applicants

The management of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) has warned admission seekers into the institution against the activities of racketeers.

NAN reports that in a statement on Saturday, Benedicta Ehanire, the institution’s public relations officer, said racketeers had been collecting huge sums from unsuspecting applicants to facilitate admission.

Ehanire said the swindlers, in an attempt to convince their victims, often walk into the university’s admission offices and administration building to make their nefarious deeds look real.

She, therefore, urged the public not to fall prey to such traps as no amount was being charged for admission into the university.

“Reports have come to the University of Benin Management that professional admission racketeers, whose job is to take advantage of innocent citizens seeking admission, are on the prowl,” she said.

“The unscrupulous elements collect huge sums of money from their victims, pretending that they can get them admission into some choice programmes in the university.

“They have perfected the acts of going into admissions offices or the administration building to buttress their nefarious deeds.

“The public is advised not to fall into such traps as no money is charged for admission into the University of Benin.”

She, however, called on any victim of the dastardly act to report to her office with proof to help the university redeem its image.

Such whistleblowers, she said would be offered admission if qualified.
