Nigerian, Shuaibu arrested for robbing banks in US

Shuaibu hit another Santander Bank at 1062 Third Ave.at 63rd Street on March 27 using another demand note, making off with an unknown amount of money, police said.

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

In the first incident, Shuaibu walked into a Santander Bank on Madison Ave. near E. 43rd St. on February 27 and told the teller he had a gun.

He was successful again robbing a Santander Bank on Third Ave. on the 27th, and most recently, he tried to rob an HSBC on Third Ave. when he passed the teller a note demanding cash.

In the robberies he is reported to have told bank tellers he had a gun, while keeping his hand in his jacket pocket to simulate a firearm.

Shuaibu works for an African news agency as a journalist covering the U.N. He previously worked at the global organization as a communication specialist for two months in 2013, according to News 4 NY.

He returned to United Nations building shortly thereafter, where police were waiting for him, authorities said.

He was arrested after returning to work that afternoon.

A United Nations spokesman said Shuaibu worked there in October and November 2013, noting he also spent time as a resident correspondent representing the News Agency of Nigeria up until 2012. He was no longer employed there, however, and was apparently working for the Nigerian Press, which covers the United Nations.
