EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Friday arraigned Philomina Chieshe alongside other Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) officials over missing 35 million belonging to the board.

Naija News recalls that Chieshe had alleged that the money was swallowed by a snake in Makurdi, Benue state.

In a statement on Thursday by the acting EFCC spokesman, Tony Orilade, revealed that Chieshe will be arraigned alongside five others; Samuel Umoru, Yakubu Jekada, Daniel Agbo, Priscilla Ogunsola,and Aliyu Yakubu before Justice Peter Afen of a Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court, Abuja today.

Orilade said, “Chieshe became notorious when she made an outlandish claim that a mysterious snake swallowed about N35million cash arising from the sale of e-JAMB cards in the state.”

He said the JAMB official is being prosecuted by the EFCC on an eight-count charge, following her refusal to furnish the management of JAMB the true information on the financial status of JAMB e-cards supplied to the Benue Zonal office between 2014 and 2016.
