This animal is not a Galago or Bush Baby, it is a Sloth, a creature that is considered endangered.

    Never knew sloths could be found in Naija where everybody and everything is in a hurry. Perhaps that is why the people considered the poor animal was strange. Personally, l only saw a sloth onTV animal planet.
    Pity it was not taken to the zoo.

    Africans are generally superstitious by nature, coupled with the strange occurrences happening around us due to the complex nature of our society. We need more information and education as to handling these things. I personally will kill a strange bird or animal found in an unusual place or around my house. God deliver us from evil in all ramifications, amen
