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 staff and others in her category that are found culpable have been suspended and will be handed over to appropriate authorities," he added.

The clerk, identified as Philomena Chiesche, denied the allegations, saying the exam board invented the story about the snake. She also accused the exam board of turning her in to authorities, who she claims still haven't questioned her about the missing funds.

"I did not say any money was swallowed by a snake. Nobody questioned me about that case. I am just a clerk and I serve under directors who are accounting officers. I wonder why they are personalizing the case?" the clerk told CNN.

Social media erupted at the nature of the allegations. A Twitter account has been made for the snake. Nigeria's Economic and Financial Crimes Commission tweeted that the agency's national symbol, the eagle, shows no mercy for "money-swallowing snakes."
