An official of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Madam Philomina Chieshe who alleged that a missing N35million naira belonging to the Board, was allegedly swallowed by a Snake inside the office in Benue State to be arraigned.
According to the statement released by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday 30th May 2019, Madam Philomina Chieshe will be arraigned on the 31st May 2019, which is today. She 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.
EFCC report said, Madam Philomina Chieshe became notorious when she made an outlandish claim that a mysterious snake swallowed about N35million cash arising from sale of e-JAMB cards in the state.
The controversial JAMB official is being prosecuted by the EFCC 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. Chieshe’s action is contrary to Section 139 (a) of the Penal Code Law.
