Fake VC Facebook account: UNIMAID issues strong warning

The attention of the University of Maiduguri’s management has been attracted to multiple Facebook pages created by some yet-to-be-identified individuals that include the personal and official information of the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Aliyu Shugaba.

Undeserving individuals have been utilizing false accounts to intentionally embarrass him or to compromise the integrity of the Vice Chancellor’s office by making fraudulent proposals to or requesting undue favors from members of the general public who are unaware.

Even though Professor Shugaba has a personal Facebook account, he has never utilized it to transact any type of business or to give help or assistance to any individual or group in either his private capacity or on behalf of the University of Maiduguri.

The public is advised to ignore, or to draw the attention of the University or any relevant authority, to the activities of individuals or groups attempting to use social media platforms such as Facebook or Twitter to make an offer or transact any form of business in the name of the Vice-Chancellor or the University of Maiduguri while the University Management is closely working with relevant security agencies to track down the perpetrators.
