Oyo state government has ordered the immediate closure of Agodi Zoo in Ibadan over the killing of an attendant by one of the lions in the zoo.


A statement by Yinka Fatoki, Executive Secretary, Bureau of Investment Promotion (BIP) in Ibadan on Saturday said that the decision was to safeguard the lives of patrons.

It added that government had also taken the decision based on a report received from AM & C, the company managing the Zoo.

It quoted the report as saying: “one of the lions at the Zoo had accidentally attacked one of the attendants, Hamzat Oyekunle popularly known as Baba Olorunwa.

“Oyekunle was reported to have later died from injuries sustained from the incident.”

It said that the lions have been evacuated pending further investigations.
