Meanwhile, Naija News reports that the development is coming a month after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Nigeria’s anti-graft agency, arraigned Philomena Chishe, a controversial official of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and five others for trial over alleged N36million fraud.
Chishe was arraigned before Justice Peter Afen at the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
This online news platform understands that Chishe is being prosecuted on an eight-count charge bordering on fraud 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.
