Gorilla ‘swallows’ N6.8M in Kano Zoo


A gorrilla has been accused of swallowing the sum of N6:8 Million in the kano zoological Gardens, 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 Managing Director of Kano Zoo, Umar Kashekobo confirmed that money is missing, “Police are investigating what happened – all I can say is money is missing.”

Five days’ worth of gate fees had disappeared, Kano Police spokesperson Abdullahi Kiyawa said.

He told the BBC that 10 people had so far been arrested and officers were also investigating why such a lot of money was being kept in the office instead of the bank.

Freedom Radio, a popular station in Kano, reported that the money was missing earlier this week.

It interviewed someone from the zoo’s finance department who said a gorilla sneaked into the office, stole the money and later swallowed it.
