How true is this claim?
In an attempt to verify the news in circulation, UCJ UNILORIN contacted the Students’ Union PRO, Isa Abass Uthman a.k.a Analyser and the Sub-Dean of the University’s Students’ Affairs Unit, Dr. Alex Akanmu.
Reacting to the claim, the SU PRO debunked the news adding that such has not been communicated to the Students’ Union by the management and thus, so far, it can be regarded as fake news.
The Sub-Dean also debunked this claim, noting that he has no knowledge of such information.
So far, no official of the University can confirm this claim and as such, it is FALSE.
