Following report that a staff of Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board in Makurdi, Philomina Chieshe, claimed N36m, proceeds from the sale of scratch cards to candidates in her possession was swallowed by snake(s), Senator Shehu Sani on Tuesday visited the Abuja headquarters of the examination body.
Sani representing Kaduna Central made light of the fraud report when he visited JAMB Headquarters in Bwari, with snake charmers, and presented snake repellant to the management staff of the exam body.
The senator said his visit was in response to the story that a snake swallowed N36m.
He lamented that it was of concern that such a huge sum of money was reported to have been swallowed by a snake.
“I believe that the contribution I can make is to bring snake charmers from my constituency to the JAMB office and to help them fish out the snake and weed out snakes from their premises.”
Sani further said that if a snake could actually swallow N36m, one day, Nigerians might wake up to say that a snake had swallowed the country’s foreign reserve.
“Even if it is a spiritual matter, we believe that these people I brought are some of the best snake charmers in the country and they will help in arresting both physical and spiritual snakes if there has been any in the JAMB office.”
