Photos: Nigerian United Nations worker arrested for alleged strings of bank robberies in New York

A 53-year-old Nigerian man who works at the United Nations was arrested in connection with a string of bank robberies in Manhattan, over the past month and a half, law enforcement sources tell News 4 New York. The NYPD’s Major Case Squad arrested Abdullahi Shuaibu, of Queens, on Monday, April 17th, at his office at the Foreign Press Centers across from the United Nations building.
Police believe he robbed banks while on work breaks.

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 is listed as a communication specialist at the U.N. He apparently works for the Panapress News Agency out of Nigeria. A photo on Facebook shows him shaking hands with a U.N. official inside the General Assembly. 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

It could be a case of mistaken identity.

The police believes he was the one so they are not sure yet they arrest him, some thing is really not true about this

A 53 year old robber with a dream job. I can't believe this is true, it has to be a case of mistaken identity or a set-up.

It's now a set up bc of his origin. If it's another tribe,u will start abusing his entire race. Hypocrists !

Thank God this name doesn't sound like Igbo name.

Just because he has muslim name he can not be a bank robber. Only Igbo people love money. Empty vessel. Shut up
