How Gorilla Swallowed N6.8m In Kano Zoo.
According to BBC Pidgin, a gorilla was charged with swallowing the N6.8 million in the Kano Zoological Gardens.
A finance officer in the zoo was cited as stating that the gorilla “sneaked into their office” and pre-swallowed the cash away.
Latesthubs were unable to verify this event instantly that was said to have occurred during the Sallah festivities.
Umar Kobo, the zoo’s managing director, verified missing the cash and investigating the problem.
“For now, the issue is under investigation and I don’t want to say anything about it, a lot of journalists have come to meet me but I don’t want to speak about anything. What I can confirm is that there is a lack of cash, “he informed the Pidgin BBC.
Latesthubs were unable to reach Abdullahi Haruna, Kano’s police spokesperson, for remarks as of the moment this report was submitted. He was cited as confirming, however, that 10 people were detained, including those on duty when the cash was missing.
“Yes, it’s true that cash from Sallah’s five-day celebrations is missing from the Kano zoo,” he supposedly said, adding: “As at present, we’ve detained ten members of the zoo employees including the security guard and those employed in the finance department.
This is not the first time that pets are engaged in Nigeria’s associated problems.
Philomina Chieshe, a sales clerk at the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) office in Benue state, alleged in February last year that a snake had swallowed N36 m as a result of scratch card sales.
Also, former senator Shehu Sani once said northern legislators carted N70 million monkeys.
