Robbers stole N6.90m in Kano Zoo not Gorilla – MD

The administration of Kano Zoological Garden has made a brisk inversion over the missing N6.82 million announced gulped by Gorilla in a Kano Zoo expressing that the cash was stolen from its coffers by outfitted looters.

Mallam Umar Yusif Umar, the Managing Director of the zoo said it has no Gorilla and that the cash was stolen by criminals.

"I was called midnight on Sunday June ninth, by the head of security that outfitted burglars burgled our office including the income office," Umar told Journalists.

"About 6.30 a.m., I left my home for the workplace and quickly I arrived I met my office and that of the considerable number of executives opened.

"Immediately I called the DPO, Sharada police headquarters and announced the case to him. To the extent I'm concerned, I speculate burglary and nothing near Gorilla."

Umar said the cash stolen was N6.90 million and not N6.82 million generally announced.

Kano police representative, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, said 10 staff of the zoo, including the bookkeeping officer Lawan Dandadarin, have been captured and kept.

Haruna told newsmen that the announcement gathered from those captured so far has nothing to do with Gorilla.

"Up until now, data gathered from the suspects proposes outfitted burglary case and that of carelessness," Haruna said.

BBC Pidgin gave an account of Friday that Freedom Radio, a Kano-based radio station asserted that a fund officer it addressed said "a tremendous Gorilla" sneaked into their office to "swallow" the cash.

Be that as it may, the head of current issues Freedom Radio Nasiru Salisu said the Gorilla story did not exude from the station.

"We challenge anyone who asserted we break the Gorilla news to come out and prove it. "We never report such story.

"Like each other individual, we saw the data via web-based networking media and a journalist was drafted to examine the issue," Salisu said.
