Through the National Universities Commission (NUC), the federal government has released the 2022 updated list of illegal universities that have been closed down in Nigeria.

The list is contained in the NUC’s bulletin released on Monday, September 12 and sighted by Legit.ng.

The commission urged the members of the public, especially parents and prospective undergraduates, that the listed universities are not licensed by the federal government.

The illegal universities also referred to as degree mills, were closed down for violating the Education (National Minimum Standards etc.) Act CAP E3 Law of the Federation of Nigeria 2004.

It added that law enforcement agencies have been informed in order to take further necessary action.
