One Philomena Chieshe, a JAMB official is currently telling investigative authorities all that she knows about the disappearance of N36 million that was kept in her trust as the sales clerk in charge of selling scratch cards to prospective students.
After auditors, that were dispatched to JAMB offices nationwide, got to the Makurdi office, they discovered N35 million could not be accounted for. However, in a strange twist, Philomena claims the money was mysteriously swallowed by a snake, in connivance with a colleague and a lady from outside.
“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”:
Even though none of these makes sense, we hope the lady, her housemaid, her colleague and the other lady ‘from outside’ have all been rounded up and made to atone for their sins.
