Philomina Chieshe, the official of the Joint
Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), who claimed that the board’s N36 million was swallowed by a snake, has made a U-turn.
Chieshe, who works as a clerk at the JAMB office in Markurdi, Benue state, had told top officials of the examination body that a “mysterious snake” swallowed the money
derived from the sale of JAMB scratch cards.
But when she appeared before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), she confessed that the money was collected by one Samuel Umoru, her superior.
