Oyo State Government Announces Closure Of Agodi Zoo Over Lion Attack

Oyo State Government has announced the immediate closure of Agodi Zoo over fear of attacks on attendants by lions.




It declared that the decision to close the zoo without further delay was based on the report received from the company managing the Zoo, AM & C, that one of the lions at the zoo had accidentally attacked one of the attendants, Mr. Hamzat Oyekunle popularly known as Baba Olorunwa.

Oyekunle later died from injuries sustained from the incident.

The closure of the zoo was announced through a statement made available by the Executive Secretary, Bureau of Investment Promotion (BIP), Mr. Yinka Fatoki.

Fatoki in the statement while expressing shock at the unfortunate incident, however, declared that the lions in the zoo had been evacuated pending further investigations and to avoid further attacks.

He said that the incident was particularly surprising and sad as the said Mr. Oyekunle had fed the lion for over five years and was known to have had a very good relationship with all the animals in the zoo.

Fatoki noted that government representatives had visited the family of the deceased to commiserate with them over the demise of Mr. Oyekunle.

See how malnourished the lions look, they are better off in wild.

May the soul of the deceased rest in peace. What a sad and painful way to die, mauled by the same animal you cared for.
