Hilarious reactions have trailed 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 ‘carting away’ N36 million cash.
After the news broke on Saturday, February 10, the social media started buzzing as many Nigerians expressed shock at the news making hilarious comments.
JAMB on Monday said it has suspended its account’s clerk, as security agencies were investigating the matter
Before now, JAMB candidates purchased scratch cards from JAMB state offices and other designated centres, to gain access to the Board’s website for either registration or to check their admission status but reforms were introduced by the JAMB registrar in 2016.
As He ended the use of scratch cards, replacing it with more efficient and effective platforms.
Nigerians on social media have however reacted to the news with many hilarious comments. Among the reactions is that of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). The anti-corruption agency using its official Twitter handle said, “The Eagle shows no mercy for money-swallowing snake(s).
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.”
See the reactions below…
Update: the snake that swallowed Jamb’s money is now hungry.
So we have put it up for lease, it’s ready to swallow more monies…

People have been circulating this picture as my real identity ever since I swallowed the money.
It is the handwork of detractors. There’s no way I will wear fake Ankara and looking like a hungry version of Tonto Dike after swallowing N36million.
