Kano Zoo Staff Arrested As Hungry Gorilla Swallowed Huge Money (N7Million)

Over one year after a spiritual snaked swallowed a huge sum of money at JAMB officer in Makurdi Benue state, another animal has been accused of doing same.

An accounts officer at Kano Zoological Gardens claimed that a gorilla sneaked into an office where the money was kept and then proceeded to ‘swallow’ 6.8million Naira.

It is unclear why the accounts officer believed the story about a money-swallowing gorilla was believable. Why did the account officer build the story around a gorilla, and not some other animal? These questions are not meant to suggest that the account officer created the story, but there is no doubt that the story sounds like a creative story.

It is unclear whether the gorilla had targeted the money, or just stumbled upon it. It is unclear whether the gorilla was starving, and ready to swallow anything. It is unclear why the gorilla had such a big appetite, and had to swallow such a large sum. It is unclear whether the gorilla had swallowed money before then.

It is unclear whether the gorilla enjoyed the money it allegedly swallowed. It is unclear how the money the gorilla allegedly swallowed would affect its health. It is unclear when the gorilla would be hungry again, and whether it would try to sneak into another office to swallow more money.

Interestingly, this is not the first time an animal has been bizarrely blamed for missing money in Nigeria. A February 12, 2018, report said: “A sales clerk, Philomena Chieshe, told JAMB registrar and his team that she could not account for N36 million she made in previous years before the abolition of scratch cards. In the course of interrogation, Philomena denied the allegations that she stole the money but confessed that her housemaid connived with another JAMB staff, Joan Asen, to “spiritually” (through a snake) steal the money from the vault in the account office.” The cash disappearance happened at the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) office in Makurdi, Benue State. The management didn’t believe the sales clerk’s story about a money-swallowing snake.

In Kano, the state police command spokesman, Abdullahi Haruna Kiyaw, was quoted as saying: “Yes, 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.”

Which animal may be blamed for missing money the next time?

  1. This has now become the norm. Whenever there is embezzlement of funds an animal is blamed. It is no longer funny. What a shame.
    The first time a snake swallowed millions in jamb office. The second time a monkey swallowed millions in Kaduna and this time a Gorilla swallowed seven million in the zoo.

  2. Remind me of that old movie..snake in the monkey shadow.we are clowns and has become a laughing stock to the world.our wealthy benue snake and kano monkey should be in guiness book of records.

  3. Animals stealing huge amount of money is trending in my country….what have we done wrong in Nigeria?

  4. Every time pipuls is tiff money, they are say animals is does wetin they was not does. One day animal go vex and all of then go leave Nigeria and is enter Gana or Soutafrika or Liberia. Then we are see wetin we have do upon our sef. If na you wey pipuls are say you have do wetin is didn’t does to do by you, are you happy? No. You can’t posibul to happy. In a siminally, animals are can’t happy say pipuls have say they have swallow money every all the time. They go travul o. They go leave us enter Somalia o. Nonsens.

  5. We are never serious as a Nation and we are never guided by law, that is why our situation is why it is today. How can a criminal be jokingly saying Gorilla swallow people’s money. This is not funny at all. In a well organized nation, this guy will be pleading with the authority for leniency for reducing lengthy jail time.
