JAMB suspends clerk who accused snake over N36m scratch card proceeds


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.”
