The video footage of Philomina Chieshe – a sales clerk in the office of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in Benue state – alleging that a snake mysteriously swallowed the missing N36m, has finally been released.
The video was released about 24 hours after Chieshe denied that she never said, the money was swallowed by snake. She had told CNN that the claim was fabricated and that nobody questioned her about the missing money.
“I wonder why they are personalising the case? I did not say any money was swallowed by a snake,” Chieshe had told CNN.
“It is a mystery. I myself, whenever I am taking the money to the bank, I am not able to account for what I got, until my house help, when we went for confession, fell down and confessed in Jos when prayers started,” Chieshe said in the video.
“And she said a lot of things that she is the one behind what is happening to me at the office
“That there is a snake that comes mysteriously whenever I open the safe and swallows the cash.
“Mysteriously, nothing was amounting to what I was having.”
