EFCC makes move to arraign JAMB Official who Claimed Snake Swallowed N36m
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said that it will on Friday, May 31, 2019, arraign the official of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Philomina Chieshe who claimed that the missing N36 million
(Thirty Six Million Naira) JAMB proceeds in her custody was swallowed by a snake in the board’s Makurdi, Benue State office.
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.
Chieshe is being prosecuted by the EFCC on an eight-count charge as a result of unanswered questions regarding 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.
