This has been voted as the funniest reaction to the issue of the missing JAMB revenue - N36 million which was swallowed by a mysterious snake while it was lodged in a vault at the office.
A mystery snake is said to have sneaked into the accounts office of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, in Makurdi, the Benue State capital and made away with N36 million cash.
A team of auditors on their visit to Makurdi office of JAMB, a sales clerk, Philomina Chieshe, told JAMB registrar and his team that she could not account for N36 million she made in previous years before the abolition of scratch cards.
In the course of interrogation, Philomena confessed that it was her housemaid that connived with another JAMB staff, Joan Asen, to “spiritually” steal the money from the vault in the accounts office.
This has led to hilarious reactions on social media with some Nigerians taking jabs at provisions of the Holy Bible.

"Amarokwam o. Jonah was alive in the belly of a fish, men walked on water, water turned to wine... so many other wonderful things have happened n we believe them all. Is it because snakes swallowing money is not in the bible?
Fish swallowed a full fledged man and dropped him harmlessly ashore somewhere in the middle east- You believed it.
Snake engaged in a discussion with one woman like that convinced her to eat a forbidden fruit somewhere in the middle east - You believed it.
A Donkey got upset somewhere in the middle east and shouted at the Oga for flogging him - You believed it.
Now, our own snake just swallowed ordinary paltry 35 abi 36 million naira JAMB money, and you guys are fuming and ranting in disbelief.
Why cant we support and believe local contents for once? Haba!
What the middle eastern snake can do, our own snake can do better.
I don gerrit.
