A few days after Philomina Chieshe, a staff of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, in Makurdi claimed that a snake sneaked into the account office and swallowed N36 million cash, some monkeys have been alleged to have swallowed the N70m handed over to the Northern Senators Forum.
According to Shehu Sani, a Senator who represents Kaduna central in the Senate, monkeys on the farm of a ranking senator swallowed the money which has since been declared missing.
Sani made this known in an interview with newsmen, after Senator Abdullahi Adamu was removed as the chairman of Northern Senators forum.
The Senate had removed Adamu as the chairman of Northern Senators Forum, after discovering a mismanagement of funds in the tune of N70 million.
Minutes after Adamu was removed, Sani made the tongue-in-cheek comment about monkeys swallowing the fund on the Senator’s farm.
“There are some things that some of my colleagues cannot say but I’m not used to holding back what is the truth. “When we resumed as senators, Sen. Ahmed Lawan tendered the sum of N70 million to the 8th Senate. “That N70 million was monies gathered by northern senators from the 7th senate. So it was handed over to the 8th senators from northern Nigeria under the 8th Senate.
“I think this country is becoming a huge joke. First of all it was the rodent that drove away the President and we now have snakes consuming about N36 million, and you now you have monkeys,” Sani said.
