Gorilla And Kids Reportedly Stole N6.8M From Kano Zoo and Ate It
Yeah! You read right!
A gorilla alongside her children has been accused of stealing and eating a bulk of N6.8 million from Kano zoo.
According to BBC pidgin, a finance officer in the zoo was quoted as saying the gorilla “sneaked into their office” and carted away the money before swallowing it.
The incident was said to have occurred during the Sallah celebration and the money was what they earned that day.
The police spokesman in Kano, Abdullahi Haruna, was quoted saying;
“Yes it is true that money got missing from the Kano Zoo. It is money they realised for five days of Sallah festivities. As at now, we have arrested 10 staff members of the Zoo and they are in police CID. Among the people we arrested are the gatemen and the people in the finance unit. What we want to understand is why they left such huge amount of money for five days without taking it to the bank,” Haruna said.
The Managing Director of the zoo, Umar Kashekobo, reacting to the incident said;
“The issue is under investigations for now and I don’t want to say anything concerning the matter. Many journalists have met me on the issue but I don’t want to say anything. All I can to say is that the money got missing.”
