Nigeria: ‘Snake girl’ accused of swallowing N36m in JAMB office voice out

For the first time after being accused of turning to a snake through which she swallowed N36m from the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Registry Office safe in Makurdi, Benue State, Dor, 16, opened a box of verses.

According to one of News Media DAILY POST, Philomena Chieshe, a sales clerk at the JAMB office, shocked the penultimate world a few weeks ago after claiming that her maid had teamed up with another JAMB employee, Joan Asen, to swallow “spiritually” the N36m from the safe of his office.

In her confessional statement, interviewed by a team of auditors, she stated that Joan Asen and her accomplices had confessed to stealing money “spiritually” through a mysterious snake that was still slipping into the office to swallow money from the safe.

According to her “It was a mystery to me too. I have been saving the money in the bank, but I found it difficult to account for it. So I started saving it in a vault in the office. But each time I open the vault, I will find nothing. I became worried and surprised how the millions of Naira could be disappearing from the vault.

“I began to interrogate everybody in the house and office, and no one could agree on what might have happened to the money. I continued to press until my housemaid confessed. She said that the money disappeared “spiritually”. She said that a “mysterious snake” sneaked into the house and swallowed the money in the vault.”

However, when contacted the erstwhile housemaid, who was relieved of her job following the shocking revelation in November 2017, she denied ever confessing to have turned to a snake or swallowing any money.

Dor, a native of Angantiv in Obi LGA of Nasarawa State, recalled that her ‘madam’ truly went to Plateau State for a conference last year but she did not follow her.

According to her, few days after returning home from the crusade, hosted by a popular man of God in Jos, her boss (Philomena) asked her to go that she was relocating to Abuja.

“That was towards the end of 2017. I was at home when they went for the crusade. When madam came back from Jos, she asked me to go that they were relocating to Abuja and she would not go with me.

“I came to her house in 2015 July and I did not at any point steal even her one kobo before I left last year. Maybe she was not referring to me, but I am sure she didn’t have any maid before and after me,” Dor, who now resides in Karu area of Nasarawa said when an insider directed us to her new residence.

When this reporter stormed Philomena’s family house in High Level, Makurdi on Saturday to confirm if it was Dor, who actually turned to a snake, a man we met there said she had since relocated.

“Madam Philo no dey live here again,” he said rudely.

Meanwhile, when DAILY POST reached Fabian O. Okoro, JAMB’s director of Information and Technology, for update on Monday morning, he did not reply their text at the time of their report.
