A gorilla was accused of swallowing N6.8million cash in the Kano Zoological Gardens.
Confirming the shocking incident to BBC Pidgin, the command’s spokesman, DSP Abdullahi Haruna said that investigation is ongoing.
He added that ten persons in the finance unit have been arrested including the gateman.
“It is true that money from five days of Sallah festivities is missing from the Kano zoo. As at now, we have arrested 10 members of staff of the zoo including the security man and those working in the finance unit.”
The finance officer, according Freedom Radio, when questioned, reportedly said the gorilla “sneaked into their office” and carted away the money before swallowing it.
