A JAMB’s staff in the Makurdi Office, Philomina Chieshe arrested for perpetrating N36m fraud had claimed the money was swallowed by snake(s).

The latest in the series was from one Tanko, who was formerly Nasarawa State coordinator of JAMB.

Tanko is facing allegation of diverting N26m he generated from the sale of scratch cards hitherto used by candidates to either gain access to the exam body’s website for registration or other services.

Reports said the suspect under interrogation claimed the money was burnt in his car when he had auto crash sometime ago.

JAMB spokesman, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, made this known in Abuja.

Benjamin stated that in Tanko’s confessional statement he claimed the   unsold scratch cards were burnt when he was involved in a car crash in 2016, a claim JAMB said was false saying its database confirmed that it registered the serial numbers of the scratch cards, which were used by candidates for registration or other processes.
