JAMB: After snake swallowing of N36million, another N26 million is missing

Just one week after the strange story of N36 million swallowed by a snake in JAMB office as said by its Benue state sales clerk, the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) has noticed another fraud of N26 million supposedly carried out by its former Nasarawa State coordinator, known as Tanko.

The Former Nasarawa State coordinator was said to have stolen the money gotten from the sale of the scratch cards used by admission seekers  for registration and other services.

Dr. Fabian Bejamin, JAMB Spokesman, told newsmen in Abuja that Tanko had rendered apology to the JAMB audit team for not being able to account for the money.

In the confessional statement, the official claimed that the unsold scratch cards were consumed in a fire when he was involved in a car accident. He was also unable to account for the scratch cards he sold before the use of scratch cards was prohibited in 2016.

JAMB’s head of media said that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the police had been invited to assist in recovering money allegedly stolen by its officials in the Abuja headquarters and the state offices.

He said: “In JAMB, we have nothing to hide. We run an open door system, where the public must have unfettered access to information, positive or negative, present or past.

“The fact remains that the officer in question in our Benue office and many others found in similar situations in some other states diverted the funds before the coming of Oloyede.

“But, be that as it may, management is working assiduously to arrest and hand over to the appropriate quarters this snake that swallowed our N36 million and a host of others still in our system.”
