The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has uncovered another fraud of N26 million allegedly perpetrated by its former Nasarawa State coordinator, simply identified as Tanko.
It should be noted that, the “mystery” snake saga which is still all over the internet happened few days back at the JAMB office Benue State. The issue is yet to be resolved click in case you missed the gist.

The N26m was also embezzled from the money generated from the sales of scratch cards made in previous years before the abolition of scratch cards.

Meanwhile, it was reported that Mr Tanko claimed that the unsold scratch cards were burnt when he was involved in a car crash some time ago.  

According to Dr. Dr. Fabian Benjamin one of JAMB’s spokesman, he said, Mr tanko has apologised for his inability to account for the missing money. 
JAMB’s head of media said that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the police had been invited to assist in recovering money allegedly stolen by its officials in the Abuja headquarters and the state offices.

He said: “In JAMB, we have nothing to hide. We run an open door system, where the public must have unfettered access to information, positive or negative, present or past.

“The fact remains that the officer in question in our Benue office and many others found in similar situations in some other states diverted the funds before the coming of Oloyede.

“But, be that as it may, management is working assiduously to arrest and hand over to the appropriate quarters this snake that swallowed our N36 million and a host of others still in our system.”
