The video of a staff of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, in Makurdi, the Benue State capital, Philomina Chieshe who claimed that a snake sneaked into a vault and swallowed N36 million, has surfaced online.
In the video which was exclusively released by The Sun, Chieshe told board members that the money got missing in a “mysterious” way.
A team of auditors had been 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.
She said, “It is a mystery. I myself, whenever I am taking the money to the bank, I am not able to account for what I got, until my house help, when we went for confession, fell down and confessed in Jos when prayers started,” Chieshe said in the video.
“And she said a lot of things that she is the one behind what is happening to me at the office.
“That there is a snake that comes mysteriously whenever I open the safe and swallows the cash.
“Mysteriously, nothing was amounting to what I was having.”
Amused by her account, members of the investigating board asked if it was the scratch cards or the cash that the snake swallowed.
Chieshe replied “exactly”, the snake swallowed the cash.
