Hilarious reactions have trailed the report of a ‘mysterious snake’ that allegedly sneaked into the accounts office of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in Makurdi, the Benue State capital ‘carting away’ N36 million cash.
After the news broke on Saturday, February 10, the social media started buzzing as many Nigerians expressed shock at the news making hilarious comments.
An account’s clerk in the office is currently answering audit queries concerning the missing money. She said her housemaid and a fellow employee had confessed to using a snake to ‘spiritually’ stealing the monies she kept in an office vault.
Before now, JAMB candidates purchased scratch cards from JAMB state offices and other designated centres, to gain access to the Board’s website for either registration or to check their admission status but reforms were introduced by JAMB registrar Ishaq Oloyede when he assumed office in 2016.
He ended the use of scratch cards, replacing it with more efficient and effective platforms.
The board has however reacted to the report. Oloyede, JAMB Boss on Monday said that the case was that of pure criminality and fraud on the part of one of its staff.
Nigerians on social media have however reacted to the news with many hilarious comments. Among the reactions is that of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). The anti-corruption agency using its official Twitter handle said, “The Eagle shows no mercy for money-swallowing snake(s).
A twitter account @Nigeriasnake has since been opened with a hilarious bio which reads “I am the snake that ate N36 million from Jamb office. I will not vomit it.”
