Nigeria anti-graft body to probe how snake 'ate' over $100,000 govt funds

The development occurred when a team of auditors dispatched by JAMB to take inventory of sold and unsold scratch cards and recover funds generated or embezzled during sales periods.

Few days back, a JAMB official in Benue state had shocked the public with a confession wherein she claimed a mysterious snake swallowed N36 million from the board's office vault in Benue state.

"We are going to unravel, arrest and prosecute this alleged "mysterious snake", just as we are going to bring to book any of our officers or stakeholders who is caught in any activities not in line with the board's policies".

He said in the course of interrogation, Chieshe denied the allegations that she stole the money, but confessed that her housemaid connived with another JAMB staff, Joan Asen, to "spiritually", through a snake, steal the money from the vault in the account office.

"But, be that as it may, management is working assiduously to arrest and hand over to the appropriate quarters, this "snake" that swallowed our N36 million and a host of others still in our system", he said.

Meanwhile, JAMB has announced the closure of sales of Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) application forms.It said yesterday that all candidates who paid and obtained ePins and are holding such ePins were allowed to complete their registration within 24 hours.

He recalled that the Professor Ishaq Oloyede-led management had on assumption of duty embarked on a tour of the board's state offices to ascertain their actual financial standing and their general operations.

Speaking on the fraud, Benjamin said; "It is natural for the office to account for what they have after the sale of scratch cards has been stopped and we discovered that lots of money was missing in Markurdi and other offices".

The Joint Admission and Matriculations Board, JAMB, has revealed why it made the report of the missing N36 million from its Benue office public.

The Board also said the unusual snake that swallowed N36 million of public fund would be fished out and punished according.

"The Board will monitor with careful scrutiny, how entrusted staff handle government funds, as well as block all leakages and loopholes".
