In November 2020, a tourist secretly took photos of the bad state of the Kaduna zoo which includes some malnourished animals and propagated it on social media.

Sharing the photos on the social media, the tourist wrote: “I was so surprised. I felt so nervous and uneasy because it was my first time seeing a lion live.

“This is my first time in a zoo. I virtually saw them in movies, news, and magazines. Actually, most of the animals in the zoo are not well-fed. They lack proper treatment or let me say-malnutrition.”

“Yes, I can confirm that the lion has passed on barely two weeks when its footage went viral, ” the staff said.

“Some veterinary doctors came to take the lion for treatment later, they came with the shocking news that the lion has died as a result of some complications.’
