Oyo Govt Closes Agodi Zoo



The Oyo State Government has announced the immediate closure of Agodi Zoo.



The government said this decision is 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, who later died from injuries sustained from the incident.



Meanwhile, the lions have been evacuated pending further investigations.



The government decision was contained in a statement at the weekend by the Executive Secretary, Bureau of Investment Promotion (BIP), Mr. Yinka Fatoki who expressed shock at the unfortunate incident.



He said that the incident is 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.



Meanwhile, government representatives have visited the family to commiserate with them over the demise of Mr. Oyekunle.

But this does not warrant closure, what happened to closing where such incidence happend, until further investigation is carried out.

But closing the whole place would also affect the state economy, because the little they generate from that place would be off completely, and it can also warrant the state to owe workers working there.

These kind of terrible headlines shouldn't appear on days like this. They call us 'Zoo' even though we are not.



You People have just given the IPOD yoots something to masturbate with.


We Nigerians are 'managing' to celebrate our 57th independence anniversary abeg.

The carnivorous nature of feline animals is not in domestication but in the DNA.

i doubt if anybody will go there after such incidence.....closing it and re-opening later might boost people's safety confidence!

why are people not learning from the past ? Wild animals can't be your friend ever, even if you spend 50 years together with them. The killer instinct will never go. A wild animal is a wild animal.

So sad you chose to do a dangerous job in a sick country where safety is an alien concept.

They probably watched him being mauled without shooting the crazy wild animal dead and saving a human life.
