The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has said that it will “show no mercy” to the alleged ‘snake’ that recently “swallowed” the sum of N36m at the Makurdi, Benue State office of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board.

An employee of JAMB, Philomina Chieshe, had, during an interrogation by a committee set up to audit the sale of UTME forms before the board started online sales, said that a “mystery snake” sneaked into its accounts office and made away with the cash.

Reacting to the development on its verified Twitter handle on Monday, the EFCC vowed to ensure a thorough investigation of the case.

At 6.30pm on Monday, the tweet had attracted 5,349 retweets, 5,286 likes and over 1,000 comments.

The post, which has generated intense debate among Nigerians on Twitter, was accompanied with the image of an eagle preying on a snake.

Some Nigerians who reacted to the tweet urged the EFCC not to be political in its investigation of the matter.

While some hailed the agency, others warned that the ‘snake’ should not be allowed to defeat the eagle.

One of them, who tweeted as @UtdFan4, wrote, “The eagle picks its prey and then flies to a safe location. If it eats the prey, we don’t know. If the prey gives the eagle bribe, we don’t know. If it’s all a camouflage, we still don’t know. In everything let’s just give thanks and appreciate nature.”

Another commentator, identified as Yucan Fukof, pleaded that the “swallowed money” should be recovered. He tweeted, “So the eagle will eat the snake with the money?”

The comments were, however, flooded with pictures showing snakes supposedly having money in their wombs and pictures of snakes clashing with an eagle, among others.

Meanwhile, the JAMB through its Head of Information, Fabian Benjamin, said that it had suspended Chieshe over the matter.
