IMSU Moves To Expel 238 Students Over Fake Admission Letters

Listen to article

A total of 238 students of the Imo State University (IMSU), have been recommended for expulsion from the institution due to their display of forged admission letters.

In a press release dated Wednesday and signed by Ralph Njoku, the university’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), it was revealed that the affected students had used their parents’ and guardians’ assistance to illegally get access to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and IMSU websites.

Then, some of the applicants printed fictitious admission documents and pretended to be students at Imo State University in Owerri.

“The said candidates who are flaunting fake admission letters are not our students,” the notification states.

“It is important for parents to understand that these con artists’ actions have seriously threatened the futures of their children and wards.

“We know our students who are legally admitted into the university but names of those who are fraudulently parading fake admission letters have been published in some local tabloids for the public to take note of.

“The institution is still investigating how the two hundred and thirty-eight students were illegally admitted into Imo State University.”

In another report, a joint team of the Nigerian Army and the Nigerian Navy have reportedly killed no fewer than five suspected fighters of the Eastern Security Network (ESN) during a gun battle that occurred at Ejemekuru in Oguta Local Government Area of Imo State.

The encounter with IPOB’s fighters is coming a few days after a fierce gun duel between the troops and IPOB fighters occurred in the Orsu LG of the state.

The troops killed an IPOB fighter in the operation and recovered three Improvised Explosive Devices, one Toyota Highlander SUV, one Hilux vehicle, eight rounds of 7.62mm (Special) ammunition, among others from their hideouts.
