The management of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said all its staff involved in the case of the mysterious snake that allegedly swallowed N36 million belonging to the examination body have had their movements restricted pending the outcome of the ongoing investigations on the matter.
JAMB’s Head of Media and Public Relations, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, who confirmed the development, during the weekend explained that the discovery was made after the new Registrar of the examination body, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede ordered a comprehensive audit of the accounts of all departments, units and state offices across the country.
He said; “There is nothing new about the development. It is just one of those cases discovered by the new leadership of JAMB under Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, and those are involved have already had their movements restricted pending the determination of their matter.
“So the revelation is a result of the new regime of transparency and accountability being instituted in JAMB. We can assure the Nigerian public that the leadership of Oloyede would leave no stone unturned to reposition the Board for the good of the nation.”
The story of the mysterious snake that allegedly broke into the JAMB’s vault at its Benue State Office in Makurdi, leading to the unknown whereabouts of a total of N36 million, emerged over the weekend.
