A finance officer at Kano Zoological Gardens has claimed that a gorilla swallowed the sum N6.8 million that went missing under their watch.
The finance officer, according to radio station in the state, Freedom Radio, said the gorilla “sneaked into their office” and carted away the money before swallowing it.
The money was generated from tourists who visited the zoo during the past Eid-el fitr celebrations.
“Yes, it is true that money from five days of Sallah festivities is missing from the Kano zoo,” Abdullahi Haruna, police spokesman in Kano told BBC pidgin 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.
Last year, In February 2018, Philomina Chieshe, a sales clerk in the office of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in Benue state, alleged that a snake swallowed N36 million, proceeds from sale of scratch cards.
I’m sure Nigerians wish for a universe where animals could talk, so the gorilla in question can defend himself.
On that note I think we should expect a “This is Nigeria” remix from Falz.
