Ministerial nominee and outgoing Vice Chancellor of the University of Ibadan, Prof. Isaac Adewole said fraudsters are using his name on Facebook, to dupe Nigerians.

Punch Newspapers reports that the outgoing VC, through his aide, Sunday Saanu, said seven pages have been opened in his name on Facebook.

He said “those behind the crime to redirect their energy to a more productive venture, stressing that the long arm of the law will eventually catch up with the crook.”

Adding that “Already, the scammers have been promising unsuspecting people jobs and appointments, asking people to pay money into some bank accounts for administrative charges."

Saanu said "that his boss had not asked anyone to solicit funds on his behalf or directed people to pay into any designated bank account.”
