The missing sum was realized from gate takings during last week’s Eid el Fitri.
And according to the Managing Director of Kano Zoo, Umar Kashekobo, who confirmed the incident to BBC, the police have launched investigation into the matter prompting the arrest of 10 members of staff of the zoo, including the security man and those working in the finance unit.
Recall that a similar claim was made last year, by an official of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in Benue state, who said a ‘spiritual’ snake found its way into the organization’s office in Makurdi and ate N36million cash.
