A picture purportedly containing the cost of the Nigerian law school 2022/2023 has been trending with law students panicking as the fees seem outrageous.
The picture contains the Nigerian Law school logo and contact address however, the picture is falsified and has been debunked by the Director-General of the Nigerian Law School, Prof. Isa Chiroma SAN
In an interview with The Nigeria Lawyer, he claimed that the viral picture is fake and the handiwork of criminal-minded students who wanted to defraud their parents and guardians. “They do this every year. These are bunch of people who want to extort their parents,” he said.
He mentioned that a 400%( from N296 thousand Naira to 1.3 million Naira ) increase in fees is impossible. and that the school is still just receiving applications for the 2022/2023 session, so no publications can be made on the scheduled fee yet.
He also stated that they don’t share news on Social media and that verified information about the School can be found on their website.
