A gorilla has been accused of swallowing the 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.

TheCable could not immediately confirm this incident which 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.

Gistmania could not reach Abdullahi Haruna, police spokesman in Kano, for comments as of time this report was filed.

He was, however, quoted as confirming that 10 persons, including those on duty when the money went missing, have been arrested.


A big Gorilla in the Kano Zoological Gardens has reportedly swallowed N6.8 million meant for the operations of the zoo. The money was generated from tourists who visited the zoo during the Eid celebrations. .


On Monday June 10th when workers resumed work, it was discovered that the money was nowhere to be found.
A local radio station in the state, Freedom Radio had reported on Thursday June 13th that one of the finance officers it spoke with had said that one huge Gorilla sneaked into their office and allegedly swallowed the close to seven million naira. .


Confirming the loss of the money, the Managing Director of the zoo, Umar Kashekobo, said indeed there was money missing in the organization but that he would rather not say anything about it as the matter was under investigation. .

. ''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.” .



Commenting on the matter, the spokesperson in the state police command, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, said the matter was under investigation. ” 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

 Why do want them to x-ray the animal! Actually, the gorilla ate more 6.8 million but the man is just trying to help Nigeria, so he paid out some money from his own pocket.
 Also, some snakes, monkey and even fish ate millions of naira, if not for the good Samaritans they would have swallowed billions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
