In Lagos: Indian man guards house with lion


Operatives of the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit have surrounded a house being guarded by a lion on Muri Okunola Street, Victoria Island.



Punch Metro gathered that the officials had been deployed in the house since Friday after residents petitioned the state government on the presence of the wild animal in the house.

The animal reportedly belongs to an Indian national who rented an apartment in the house.



The Head of the task force team, Mr. Yinka Egbeyemi, told Punch that he had the instruction of the Commissioner for the Environment and the Ministry of Agriculture to tranquilise the animal today (Monday).

He said the lion would be subsequently transferred to a zoo.

Egbeyemi noted that the Indian might also be prosecuted, as he would have to explain how he brought the carnivore into the state. Punch
