The management of Kwara State Polytechnic, Ilorin, has distanced itself from Awoleye Joshua, a student of the institution suspected to have defrauded a United States of America lady, Volapolonius Moss, after he tricked her to come to Nigeria.
Joshua, aged 23, alleged that he was a Higher National Diploma student of the Mechanical Engineering Department of the institution.
Reacting, Kwarapoly in a statement issued on Saturday signed by Halimat Garba, the Public Relations Officer for the institution on behalf of the Registrar said, “the Management wishes to disclaim this malicious news about the polytechnic with the fact that Awoleye Joshua Oluwatofunmi is not a student of the institution.
“Please, note that the said Awoleye was once a student of the institution, and had graduated from the polytechnic in 2021 with Lower Credit at the National Diploma level from Mechanical Engineering Department.
According to the statement, Awoleye was recently offered admission in Mechanical Engineering at the Higher National Diploma level but failed to register, hence, his admission was withdrawn.
He added, “He is therefore not a student of the polytechnic as only registered students are recognised by the institution.
“On the strength of this, the polytechnic management enjoins all stakeholders and members of the public to always verify the veracity of anything tagged with the polytechnic’s name before circulating same.”
