He said the animal was captured around 7:00 a.m. on Monday by the staff of the Zoo that used to feed it on a daily basis.

“The operation was to be conducted after the arrival of some experts from the National Park, Abuja but luckily around 7:00 a.m. today, our staff were able to use their expertise to put it back into its cage.

“I’m happy to tell you that the escaped lion has finally been captured and taken back to its cage this morning,” he said.
