UPDATE! Armed Robbers Not Gorilla Stole Missing N6.8m in Kano Zoo – Managing Director, State Police

During a press conference yesterday June 17th, the Managing Director of the Kano Zoological Garden, Umar Yusuf Umar, denied media reports that the missing N6.8 million generated by the Zoo during the Eid holidays earlier this month, was swallowed by a Gorilla in the zoo.

Umar said contrary to reports, the money was stolen by burglars. He added that the zoo has no Gorilla.

“I was called midnight on Sunday June 9th, by the head of security that armed robbers burgled our office including the revenue office. About 6.30 a.m. I left my home for the office and immediately I arrived I met my office and that of all the directors opened. Instantly I called the DPO, Sharada police station and reported the case to him. As far as I’m concerned, I suspect theft and nothing close to Gorilla.” Umar revealed.
