BREAKING: Gorilla swallows N6.8million in Kano Zoo

BBC Pidgin reports that a gorilla has been accused of allegedly swallowing N6.8million in the Kano Zoological Gardens.

A finance officer in the zoo was quoted as saying the gorilla “sneaked into their office” and carted away the

money, before swallowing it.

This comes almost a year after one Philomina Chieshe claimed a snake also swallowed 36million JAMB’s missing money in Benue state.

The incident was said to have happened during the Sallah celebrations.

Umar Kobo, the managing director of the zoo, confirmed that the money is missing and that the issue is being investigated.

“The issue is under investigations for now and I don’t want to say anything on the matter, many journalists have come to meet me but I don’t want to talk anything.

“What I can confirm is that money is missing,” Kobo said.

Abdullahi Haruna, the Police spokesman in Kano, was quoted as confirming that 10 persons, including those on duty when the money went missing, have been arrested.

“Yes, it is true that money from five days of Sallah festivities is missing from the Kano zoo,” he reportedly said, adding: “As at now, we have arrested 10 members of staff of the zoo including the security man and those working in the finance unit.”
