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 8.7billion naira 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 36 million naira.
Chise later told EFCC operatives that the said 36 million naira was disbursed as an I-Owe-You advance to cash-strapped staff.
The 8.7 billion naira alleged fraud is said to have predated the present JAMB management, led by Ishaq Oloyede.
A document detailing the alleged fraud showed the large sum was revenue from sales of e-facility cards and change of course cards which ended in private pockets.
