Nigerians on social media went on a craze after reports emerged that a state official had blamed an enigmatic serpent for missing cash amounting to 36 million naira or an equivalent of Sh10 million.

The missing funds belong to the country's Joints Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), a state agency responsible for the registration of admissions for people seeking to enter the various universities.

This is coming on the heels of the claim by a staff, Philomena Chieshe, that a snake swallowed the N36 million she made from the sale of recharge cards. "These are things the Registrar is trying to unravel to put the board on the right footing". Fabian Benjamin, disclosed this in a statement yesterday, saying the board would deploy all available resources to arrest and prosecute anyone found undermining the integrity of the board irrespective of who is involved.

JAMB candidates usually purchase scratch cards to gain access to the Board's website for either registration or for checking their admission status but that has been stopped by the registrar, Ishaq Oloyede.

He maintained that the Board is not going to take lightly its fight against corruption no matter who is involved.

JAMB said it is also investigating a state officer who failed to give account of money realized from the sale of its scratch cards who has blamed his failure on his involvement in an accident.

Benjamin said the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and Police have been invited to assist in recovering some monies allegedly stolen by its officers within the headquarters and the state offices.

"There was no snake anywhere to have swallowed the money".

"The Board will monitor with careful scrutiny, how entrusted staff handle government funds, as well as block all leakages and loopholes".

"The Board would not leave any stone unturned in its fight to stamp out corruption in its activities".

He stressed that JAMB would not condone or hide any act of misconduct, no matter how uncomfortable or unpleasant it may be to the board or any stakeholder. We run an open door system where the public must have an unfettered access to information, be it positive or negative, whether in the present or past.
