The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has launched into a probe of the cash inflow and outflow of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) between 2010 and 2016.
The anti-graft agency wants to get to the root of an alleged N8.7billion fraud in the board.
Fifteen suspects have already been shortlisted for trial.
Among them are some zonal heads and state coordinators. One of the suspects facing trial is a female accountant, Philomena Chise, whose sensational claim that a snake swallowed N36million raked in from the sales of e-facility cards rocked the nation.
Chise later told EFCC operatives that the said N36milion was disbursed as an I-Owe-You advance to cash-strapped staff.
The N8.7billion alleged fraud is said to have predated the present JAMB management, led by Prof. Ishaq Oloyede.
