Former NAN Correspondent Arrested in String of New York Bank Robberies

Abdullahi Shuaibu, a former News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, correspondent to the United Nations Tuesday was arrested by the New York Police department for robbing four Manhattan banks, all during his lunch break.

 

Shuaibu, 53, was sacked by NAN in April 2013 following his refusal to resume work in Nigeria at the expiration of duty tour and extended period which he requested to enable him complete an academic programme, Per Second News learnt. 

The NYPD’s Major Case Squad arrested Abdullahi Shuaibu, at his office at the Foreign Press Centers across from the United Nations building. 

Law enforcement sources say Shuaibu robbed a HSBC bank at 40th Street and Third Avenue on Monday and then returned to work shortly before he was arrested. They say he’s wanted in at least three other bank robberies.

Shuaibu once worked as a communication specialist at the United Nations in Darfur, spending two months there in 2013, according to a U.N. spokesperson. 

Police believe he’s the man who robbed a Santander Bank on Madison Avenue on Feb. 27, a Bank of America on Third Avenue on March 13, and a Santander Bank on Third Avenue on March 27. In each of the robberies, the suspect passed a note to a clerk demanding money.

Police charged Shuaibu with two counts of robbery and two counts of attempted robbery.
