Nigeria: Snake ate millions of naira, clerk says

A Nigerian sales clerk has been suspended after she told auditors that a snake had eaten 36m naira.

That’s the equivalent of $100,000 or £72,250.

The clerk, Philomena Chieshe, was working at an office for the Nigerian examination board which collects exam fees.

The exam board, the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board, told the BBC that it dismissed her claim and has started disciplinary proceedings.
