EFCC Prosecutes Woman Who Claimed Snake Swallowed JAMB’s N35m

Remember the controversial official of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Philomina Chieshe,  who claimed that a snake swallowed N35 million in her custody?  Well, she was arraigned today (Friday) by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Chieshe will be arraigned alongside five others, namely: Samuel Umoru, Yakubu Jekada, Daniel Agbo, Priscilla Ogunsola, and Aliyu Yakubu before Justice Peter Afen of a Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court, Abuja.

A statement by the acting spokesperson for the EFCC, Tony Orilade, on Thursday Ms Chieshe ”became notorious when she made an outlandish claim that a mysterious snake swallowed about N35million cash arising from the sale of e-JAMB cards in the state.”

He said, the woman is being prosecuted on an eight-count charge, following her refusal to furnish the management of JAMB the ”true information on the financial status of JAMB e-cards supplied to the Benue Zonal office between 2014 and 2016.”

He said her action runs contrary to Section 139 (a) of the Penal Code Law.
