Tension In Ibadan As Lion Kills Zoo Attendant In Agodi Zoo

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, Whom later died from injuries sustained from the incident.

The closure of the zoo was announced through a statement made 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.

  1. After 5yrs? The lion is an ingrate joor...Rip man! May his soul find peace

    1. Ingrate from a lion. Lol.

    2. I strongly feel that Lion was hungry and wasn't well fed. It wanted meat with taste of fresh blood, what other way to satisfy that craving than to Devour on his Chef...
      It's so sad that he had to died this way.

    3. Maybe the keeper annoyed itπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  2. Good relationship with the animals? Wonderful! This is why visiting any zoo will always scare me, I no fit shout abeg.

  3. Abegi which Frnd wan exist between a wild animal and human in this our sinful world. Rip man. I believe in a new Nigeria.
    Three guys were gisting at a beer parlour.
    The first guy said when my wife was pregnant she was reading
    a book; a tale of two cities and she gave birth to twins.
    The second said his wife was reading the three musketeers and
    she gave birth to triplets.
    The third guy dropped his beer bottle and started running
    When they got to his house they saw him burning a book and
    they asked why.
    He said his wife was reading Ali Baba and the forty thieves and
    she is pregnant……not in this house ……it can not happen!. copied

  4. Exactly you can't have a good relationship with animals because they are just that even the domesticated cats and dogs. When they turn on their owners it's usually brutal.

  5. So in peace man

  6. I just hope I would have the courage to visit a zoo someday. Let me stick to my Nat Geo wild to get a glance of what them wild mammals look like

  7. Good relationship with a carnivore? Odinma. Rip to the dead.
    I watched where one of these people that think these animals are their friend went to cuddle a leopard two actually in a park while the park ranger watched. She said at first she taught the thing was tingling her while it was actually sniffing her, then bam, it attacked, it was the ranger that saved her. They be tempting God unnecessarily

  8. An animal don't know friendship when

  9. That zoo always looking unsecured. The fences looked weak and were actually falling in some places. Not surprised though. My hubby was wary of the place when we visited

  10. Na so lion be, na lion dey betray pesin pass, just like Buhari d lion king. Befriend a lion, it will kill u.
