Details on How The Strange Snake Swallowed The N36m In Jamb Office

A mystery snake is said to have sneaked into the accounts office of the Joint
Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, in Makurdi, the Benue State capital
and made away with N36 million cash.
         Before now, JAMB candidates purchased scratch cards from JAMB state
offices and other designated centers, to gain access to the Board’s website for
either registration or to check their admission status but the reforms introduced by JAMB registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, recommended an end to the
use of scratch cards.
A team of auditors was dispatched to different state offices of JAMB to take
inventory of the sold and unsold scratch cards and recover whatever money
that might have either been generated or mismanaged during the period of the
sale of scratch cards.On their visit to Makurdi office of JAMB, a sales clerk, Philomina Chieshe, told JAMB registrar and his team that she could not account for N36 million she made in previous years before the abolition of scratch cards.
          In the course of interrogation, Philomena confessed that it was her housemaid that connived with another JAMB staff, Joan Asen, to “spiritually” steal the money from the vault in the accounts office.
         She 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.”
       Philomina in her confessional statement said that Joan Asen and her
accomplices confessed that they have been stealing the money “spiritually”
through a mysterious snake that always sneak into the office to swallow the
money from the vault.
      According to her “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.”
