The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) will today, May 31, 2019, arraign an ex-official of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Philomina Chieshe who allegedly claimed that the missing N35 million JAMB’s generated revenue in her custody was swallowed by a snake in Benue state JAMB office.


According to a press release by the Head, Media and Publicity of EFCC, Tony Orlando, Chieshe, a sales clerk of the examination board will be arraigned alongside five others who were also involved in the disappearance of the N35 million.


Report revealed that Philomina Chieshe alongside Samuel Umoru, Yakubu Jekada, Daniel Agbo, Priscilla Ogunsola and Aliyu Yakubu will be arraigned before Justice Peter Afen of a Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court, Abuja.


Chieshe is being prosecuted by the anti-graft agency on an eight-count charge, following her refusal to reveal the true information on the financial status of the examination board’s e-cards supplied to the Benue Zonal office between 2014 and 2016.

Her action is contrary to Section 139 (a) of the Penal Code Law.
