the management of the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (ATBU), Bauchi state, says the Facebook and other social media accounts of his deputy chancellor, Muhammad AbdulAzeez, have been hacked.
This is contained in a statement by the Head of the Information and Public Relations Directorate, ATBU, Bauchi, Kabiru Aminu, published on Sunday.
According to the spokesperson, the vice chancellor’s Facebook account had been hacked for some time and he warned that anyone engaging in business transactions with the account manager was on their own.
“Once again, it is brought to the attention of the university administration despite the previously issued disclaimer notice that some people continued to fall for scammers in the name of transacting business with ATBU, through the Vice Chancellor’s hacked social media handles.
“The general public is hereby once again reminded that the Vice Chancellor’s Facebook account and other social media identifiers have been hacked by some people for their selfish purposes.
“Therefore, we wish to reiterate to the general public to ignore any request to offer a contract, employment or seek any kind of assistance or offer help to any individual or company on behalf of the Vice-Chancellor, ATBU, Bauchi,” he said.
