A Gorilla has been blamed for gulping the N6.8 million in the Kano Zoological Gardens, as indicated by BBC Pidgin.
A fund officer in the zoo was cited as saying the gorilla “sneaked into their office” and trucked away the cash before gulping it.
TheCable couldn’t quickly affirm this episode which was said to have occurred during the Sallah festivities.
Umar Kobo, the overseeing executive of the zoo, affirmed that the cash is missing and that the issue is being researched.
“The issue is under investigations for now and I don’t want to say anything on the matter, many journalists have come to meet me but I don’t want to talk anything. What I can confirm is that money is missing,” he told the BBC Pidgin.
