The sales clerk also said that her housemaid connived with another staff member, Joan Asen, to “spiritually” steal the money.
Nigerians were awakened to the shocking news of a money swallowing snake in the Benue office of JAMB.
Reports say Chieshe also said that her housemaid connived with another staff member, Joan Asen, to “spiritually” steal the money, which was realised from sale of scratch cards, from the vault in the accounts office.
She was immediately suspended by the exam body, according to Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s spokesman.
According to NAIJ, the sales clerk, in an interview with CNN, said that she is yet to be interrogated.
She also said "I did not say any money was swallowed by a snake. Nobody questioned me about that case. I am just a clerk and I serve under directors who are accounting officers. I wonder why they are personalizing the case.”
The mysterious snake has become one of the most trending topics on social media after it got a Twitter account.
Nigerians have even gone ahead to create all sorts of memes to drive home the surprising story.
On Tuesday, February 13, 2018, Senator Shehu Sani visited JAMB's headquarters with anti-snake venom and snake charmers to catch the snake that was allegedly responsible for stealing N36 million.
Sani said that he was concerned by the alleged theft and presented JAMB Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, with anti-snake venom and two snake charmers to unravel the mystery.
