For some, Nigeria is a gift that keeps giving, and the polity erupted once again following the report of a ‘mysterious snake’ that allegedly sneaked into the accounts office of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in Makurdi, the Benue State capital and ‘carted away’ N36 million cash.
Well, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission isn’t buying the story as an account’s clerk in the office is currently being grilled over the missing money.
Since the news broke on Saturday, February 10, social media has been abuzz, to the extent that a Twitter account @Nigeriasnake has since been opened with a hilarious bio which reads “I am the snake that ate N36 million from Jamb office. I will not vomit it.”
While JAMB Registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, hasn’t taken lightly to the news, describing it as pure criminality on the part of its staff, Nigerians have however reacted to it with many hilarious comments, and some are simply mind-blowing.
Check out some of the reactions below…
