Lion Escapes Out Of Jos Wild Park

A lion early Wednesday morning escaped from its cage and ran out of the Jos Wild Park, Plateau State.

NAN quoted the Plateau Toursim Corporation Acting General Manager, Mr. John Doy, as saying that the wild animal which has been caged since 1972, regained its freedom today “at about 8 a.m while it was being fed”.

Explaining, Mr. Doy informed that the Lion “slipped through the gate of the cage when it was opened for its routine feeding”.

He however confirmed that the Lion was “still within the vicinity of the Park” yet expressed worry as the park was not fenced. This has prompted the anxiety that the animal might have its way to the non confined territory.

The Acting Manager also confirmed that the park officials were still “struggling to recapture it”, but cautioned members of the public to be vigilant, while the search was on.

Mr. Doy added he had already informed all security agencies in the Jos metropolis, to assist the park on the development.

The Public Relations Officer of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Mrs Naomi Cishak, said the agency was aware about the incident, but yet to be formally informed.

Similarly, the Plateau State Police Command is also yet to confirm the development, according to its Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr Emmanuel Abuh.
