Dauda Adegbenro Polytechnic, an the Ogun State-owned institution, in Itori, has uncovered an illegal study centre supposedly belonging to it.
The centre was being operated by some fraudsters.
According to Premium Times, the Rector of the Polytechnic, Alfred Fatade, made the disclosure on Thursday when the management of the institution paid a courtesy call on leadership of Nigeria Union of Journalists, Ogun State Council in Abeokuta.
He said the study centre was located in Benin City, the Edo State capital, and that the fraudsters had already rolled out admission opportunities for prospective applicants.
Mr. Fatade said the fraudsters were so audacious that they printed handbills and posters to deceive prospective applicants into seeking admission to the centre said to be with the approval of the Ogun State Government.
He explained that the discovery was made following number of requests within and outside Ogun State by confused applicants and parents, who got knowledge of the fake admission offers.
“We have just uncovered a fake study centre of Ogun State owned DS Adegbenro ICT Polytechnic. The illegal centre is located in Benin,Edo State Capital. The fraudsters also provided handbills and posters to deceive prospective candidates,” he said.
The rector said following the discovery, the management had to dispel the information and distanced itself from the fake centre, adding that a report had been made to the police.
While cautioning prospective candidates and their parents to steer clear of the centre, Mr. Fatade‎ said the polytechnic had no study centre in any part of the country or abroad.
He said, “I want to use this medium to tell the world that, the institution has no any study centre, and we do not operate outside the permanent site which is located in Itori town of Ewekoro local Government of Ogun State, along the old Abeokuta-Lagos Expressway.”
Mr. Fatade also said the convocation of the 10-year old institution, named after a former Minister for Lands and Labour in the defunct Western Region, Dauda Adegbenro, would hold before the end of the year.
According to him, the convocation would be for all 8th sets of graduating students.
He said the institution had produced many competent graduates who were currently doing well in various disciplines across the globe
