The management of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) wishes to inform the Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board (JUPEB) candidates to be wary of the following fraudulent messages circulating:
* Phone calls from fraudsters to parents/guardians of candidates who sat for the 2015 JUPEB Examinations, asking them to pay various sum of money into Bank Accounts at UBA, GTB and others, to assist their children/wards who have failed the 2015 JUPEB Examinations.
* Some statistics indicating that there is mass failure in Mathematics and Chemistry in the 2015 JUPUB Examinations, ascribed to one Head of National Office.
Candidates of JUPEB, parents/guardians, and members of general public are implored to note that:
(i) there is no iota of truth whatsoever in the requests for money ‘to assist children/wards who have failed the 2015 JUPEB Examinations’. The Results of the 2015 JUPEB Examinations are yet to be concluded, let alone released.
(ii) JUPEB is yet to release any result or statistics on the 2015 JUPEB Examinations concluded on June 25, 2015.
(iii) There is no Head of National Office in JUPEB.
The General Public should please note that JUPEB WILL NOT bear any responsibility for parents /candidates who fall prey to these fraudsters.
