NYSC Corp Member Allegedly Defrauds Students of N30m, Declared Wanted by The Police

A corps member serving in Zamfara, Fidelis Chalokwo, has been declared wanted by the Modibbo Adama University of Technology, Yola, over N30m school fees fraud​.​

​It was gathered that ​940 students of the institution risked being stopped from sitting for their second semester examination.

The affected students were considered ineligible by the bursary department of the university to sit for the examination because they had reportedly not paid their school fees.

​The schools’ ​Students Union on Tuesday, ​said ​preliminary investigations into the N30m school fees fraud ​revealed that​ Chalokwo, a former student of the university, ​allegedly​ executed​ 70 per cent of the fraud.

“More than 70 per cent of the students swindled of their school fees said they paid to Fidelis Chalokwo, who is now performing his NYSC programme in Zamfara,” said Abubakar Lawan, the SUG Vice-President.

He added that Chalokwo who was wanted to account for his crime, claimed he had left the country.

Dean, Student Affairs, MAUTECH, Yola, Dr. Haruna Lawan, ​confirmed the situation.

​He noted​ that most of the students, instead of using their Automated Teller Machine​, ATM, ​cards to make the payments, gave cash to online vendors who turned out to be fraudsters.

​Lawan​ said the least of the school fees involved was N30,700, while other victims of the scams paid as much as N37,800 in school fees which never hit the school account.

​The official said the matter has been reported to the Police.​
