JAMB suspends clerk over N36m swallowed by snake

Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s spokesman, said that security agencies have been brought in to investigate the matter.

Philomina Chieshe, the sales clerk working with the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has been suspended by the exam body.

This is coming after Chieshe alleged that a snake sneaked into JAMB’s Benue office and swallowed N36m which was made from sale of scratch cards.

According to the sales clerk, her housemaid connived with another staff member, Joan Asen, to “spiritually” steal the money from the vault in the accounts office.

Reacting to the issue, Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s spokesman, said that security agencies have been brought in to investigate the matter.

Benjamin also said “She has been suspended and she is going through all other disciplinary procedures while investigation is ongoing on the matter. Her claim was that a snake came into the office and swallowed the N36m proceeds.”

When snakes chased Boko Haram members out of Sambisa

In June 2014, it was reported that deadly snakes in Sambisa forest took it upon themselves to wage war against Boko Haram.

According to two members of the Islamic militant sect who were arrested by members of the Civilian Joint Task Force, the snakes bite them and disappear.

One of them said “We were told that the people of Chibok local government are the ones turning into snake and attacking us in the forest.”

Nigerians on Twitter have come up with several memes to properly analyse the story.
