A Nigerian filmmaker, @orlahyeahlay, said he found out seven years after graduating from Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU) that his admission was fake.
The digital marketer shared his story while replying to a netizen who urged people to narrate what made them realise life was vanity.
He said he finished from the Ogun state varsity with a second-class upper in Biochemistry in 2009, completed his NYSC in Delta State in 2011 and started working at a bank in 2013 after months of fruitlessly searching for a job.

I lost everything aside from my name and it was heart-wrenching,' he recalled on Twitter.
