    RIP Hamzat. They probably didn’t have the proper equipment for you to protect yourself in case such attack from the hungry lion.
    It’s very understandably it’s a HUNGRY LION maybe the lion haven’t seen anything eaten in weeks because we all know how taugh it’s for human being to see FOOD eat in this country called NIGERIA.

    I’m speechless about this. How could we always do this to ourselves in Nigeria. We certainly need more orientation about animal care,safety and management. RIP Mr Fatai.

    Yes, the two responders have said it well. No matter the level of friendliness, animals remain animals, especially wild . So, whose so ever is to deal with them must always do so with caution. And there must be sound immergency response system in case the dealing goes awry. Trace the remote cause and you will realize its maybe due to the same endemic corruption. May the Lord heal our land. Good morning.
