Mystery snake storms JAMB office in Markurdi, swallows N36 million made from sales of scratch cards

A mind boggling scandal is presently rocking the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in Makurdi, Benue State. Reports have it that N36 million is missing from JAMB coffers. The missing money was money made from the sales of Jamb Scratch cards.

The woman in charge of the money shockingly blamed the disappearance of the money on a mysterious snake. According to Philomena Chieshe, a mystery snake stormed the vault where she kept the money from the sales of JAMB scratch cards at night, and swallowed all N36 million.

She accused her colleague Joan Asen of conniving with someone to steal the money, then later said her housemaid confessed that the money disappeared spiritually.

Chieshe said:

“I was one of the four sales clerks attached to JAMB office in Makurdi. My responsibility was to sell scratch cards to candidates and not involved in handling the revenues. It was the responsibility of Joan Asen and my other senior colleagues. I only remit money when am done selling the cards.“Few months ago, there was issue of fraud in the Makurdi office. Auditors were sent from Abuja to carefully flip the record books of the office, to perhaps, ascertain the current state of affairs.
“The state Coordinator, Obilo, was not around when the audit team came. But in the course of the audit, N36 million was discovered to have been missing from the account. An investigation was launched. In the course of the investigation, it was discovered that Joan Asen, who is account staff and a lady outside JAMB have connived to steal the money.
“It was a mystery to me too. I have been saving the money in the bank, but I found it difficult to account for it. So I started saving it in a vault in the office. But each time I open the vault, I will find nothing. I became worried and surprised how the millions of Naira could be disappearing from the vault. I began to interrogate everybody in the house and office, and no one could agree on what might have happened to the money. I continued to press until my housemaid confessed. She said that the money disappeared “spiritually”. She said that a “mysterious snake” sneaked into the house and swallowed the money in the vault” Philomena said.
