University spokesman Sam kpenu gave the warning in a statement made available to reporters Monday in Port Harcourt.
Kpenu said the bogus recruitment notice was the work of scammers and warned potential candidates against falling prey to the scam.
He said: “The attention of UNIPORT management has been drawn to a fake Facebook account opened with the name of the Acting Vice-Chancellor, Professor Stephen Okodudu.
“The fake account is managed by a faceless person with the phone numbers: 07062317279 and 09029277867.”
Kpenu pointed out that university recruitment advertisements are typically placed in mainstream media, as well as on the university’s website for applicants to apply.
To this end, the university wishes to dissociate itself, as well as the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Stephen Okodudu, from fake Facebook, LinkedIn and Instragram accounts, among others.
“The public is advised to exercise caution to avoid being trapped by fraudsters.
“The acting vice-chancellor does not work and does not have such social networks,” he warned.
The UNIPORT spokesperson said the case had already been reported to the security agencies, to enable them to arrest and prosecute the perpetrators of the scam. (NOPE)
