A teenage girl Ngozi Eze, who went for a JAMB lesson in Enugu was found lifeless after being allegedly raped to death by unknown men.

The girl who was a JAMB candidate and taking evening classes in preparation for the UTME examination was found dead in a bush behind Community Secondary School, Imufu, Enugu.

After long hours of no return from her JAMB lessons, the family searched for her and declared her missing.

Jonathan Eze, the deceased’s father revealed he had earlier dropped her daughter with his motorbike at the tutorial centre.

Mourning the death of his daughter, Eze told the crowd that gathered in the bush where his daughter’s corpse was found that he took her on his motorcycle to the Township School, Ogrute, Enugu Ezike, where she went for JAMB lessons in the evening of Tuesday.

According to him, he went back later to pick her only to be informed that somebody had given her a lift.

“I left Township School, Ogrute and went home straight, hoping to see her but she wasn’t there. We waited till 8 pm and started looking for her.

“She was not the type that normally socialises. We did not sleep as her telephone number was switched off. It was only this morning (Wednesday) that we got information that her corpse was found here.

“She was to enter the university last year when she completed her secondary education but we prevailed on her to exercise patience for her elder brother to graduate because we cannot afford to train two persons in the university.

“Since then, she has been working hard to gain admission this year, but this is what has now happened.”  (Peplnews.net)

JAMB: EFCC Vows To Deal With Money-Swallowing Snake |The Republican News

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.  (Punch)
