She was alleged to have told operatives of the anti-graft commission that a snake swallowed the cash in question.
The offense is contrary to section 139 (a) of the Penal Code Law.
Chieshe was tossed to reckoning when she made a malicious claim that a mysterious snake swallowed about N36million cash arising from sale of e-JAMB cards in Benue state.
