Senator Shehu Sani, representing Kaduna Central surprised staff of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, this Tuesday morning when he stormed the office with anti-snake venom and snake charmers, after a staff claimed a missing N36 million was eaten by a snake.
According to Premium Times, the JAMB Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede, went into rounds of laughter when the lawmaker presented him with two packs of anti-snake venom and offered the services of two snake charmers to fish out snakes that swallowed huge amount of money.
The exams board said it suspended the staff, Philomena Chieshe, at its Makurdi office following the bizarre claim.
In reaction to the development, the senator visited the JAMB headquarters to ascertain the truth of the matter and to lend his “assistance”.
“The reason for my presence here is in response to the story that a snake swallowed about N36 million. It is my concern that such a huge amount of money is reported to have been swallowed by a snake. I believe the contribution I can make is to bring snake charmers from my constituency to the JAMB office to help them fish out the snake or weed out snakes from their premises,” Mr. Sani said.
He added that “If a snake can actually swallow N36 million one day we may wake up in this country to see that a snake has swallowed our foreign reserve or it has swallowed money that was gathered in the TSA.”
