Nigeria, Jan. 22 -- The Lagos State University (LASU) has denied reports suggesting that it would soon release an admission list based on a family relationship with members of management and staff of the institution.

In a statement on its social media handles, the university described as false, social media posts linking it to another admission list of candidates who may share relationships with workers of the university.

The statement added that the information in circulation suggested that the list would contain those candidates "whose parents/guardian work in LASU as staff or those who have a slot from one lecturer or the other in LASU".

LASU said no such information emanated from the school and should, therefore, be disregarded.
