Few days after the bizarre report that a mysterious snake ‘swallowed’ about N36 million from JAMB’s vault in Benue State, another state co-ordinator of the board in Nassarawa state has come up with a rather strange story to back an alleged fraud.

Premium Times reports that Labaran Tanko, said his car got burnt and in the process scratch cards worth N23 million were destroyed in the inferno.

In the case of Mr. Tanko, the board said after a thorough investigation, it discovered that the cards which reportedly burnt alongside Mr. Tanko’s car were used by students in Nassarawa state to register.

In the case of Mr. Tanko, the board said after a thorough investigation, it discovered that the cards which reportedly burnt alongside Mr. Tanko’s car were used by students in Nassarawa state to register.

It said this was easy to discover through simple checks done by its officials. Until Mr. Oloyede’s took over as registrar, JAMB candidates usually purchased scratch cards for either registration or to check their admission status.

However, new reforms introduced by Mr. Oloyede, ended the use of scratch cards, replacing it with a more efficient and effective platforms. The board also gave reasons why Mr. Tanko’s defence was untenable.

Every (member of ) staff who has scratch cards in their possession must have the serial numbers. We found out that the cards you claimed got burnt were used despite the police report you presented to us and for JAMB, that is N23 million of government money,” the registrar said during the session.

He also said the suspect, just like the lady indicted in Benue, would be handed over to the police once the board concludes its in-house investigations.

These funds have been embezzled before the abolition of JAMB scratch card, these reasons are given bcos the staff in question can't account for the funds.
