The Woman, Her Housemaid, The Snake And The Missing 36 Million Naira – The Real Story


Standing before a team of auditors, a sales clerk, Philomenia Chieshe, attached to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board in Markudi, Benue, claimed that a snake swallowed N 36 million from the vault.

A team of auditors had been dispatched to different state offices of JAMB to take record of the sold and unsold scratch cards and recover whatever money that might have either been generated or mismanaged during the period of the sale of scratch cards.

On getting to Makurdi, Philomina told JAMB registrar and his team that she could not account for N36 million she made in previous years before the eradication of scratch cards.

She said,

Whenever I am taking the money to the bank, I am not able to account for what I got not until my house help fell down and confessed in Jos when prayers started and she said a lot of things that she is the one responsible for what is happening to me at the office that there is a snake that comes mysteriously whenever I open the safe and takes cash. Mysteriously, nothing was amounting to what I was having.
