Tragedy As Lion Kills Zookeeper In Obafemi Awolowo University

Barely two weeks ago, a 9-year-old male lion killed a zookeeper, identified as Olabode Olawuyi, at the Zoological garden of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.

Naija News reports that the Olawuyi, a Veterinary Technologist who has been in charge of the Zoological garden for over a decade, was killed while feeding the wild cats in their den.

Confirming the incident, the Public Relations Officer of the university, Abiodun Olarewaju, in a statement, said other members of staff who were at the scene of the incident did everything to rescue the deceased, but the wild cat had already caused severe fatalities.

While commiserating with Olawuyi’s family, the varsity spokesman said the management had ordered a comprehensive investigation into the immediate and remote causes of the incident.

He said, “Mr Olawuyi has been taking care of the lions since they were born on campus about 9 years ago, but, tragically, the male lion killed the man who had been feeding them.

“The other members of staff who were at the scene of the incident did everything within their power to rescue their boss but the wild cat had already caused severe fatalities.”

Olarewaju said upon hearing the sad news, the management team, led by the Vice Chancellor, Prof Adebayo Bamire, abruptly ended an ongoing meeting for an on-the-spot assessment.
