Zookeeper loses life attempting to save woman from lion, says NASU chair

Date:

The Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, has closed its zoological garden on campus after a tragic incident where a nine-year-old lion killed Mr. Olabode Olawuyi, a veterinary technologist.

According to Mr. Wole Odewumi, the Chairman of the National Association of Non-Academic Staff of Universities at OAU, the lion initially attacked a woman working at the zoo, prompting Olawuyi’s intervention.

Unfortunately, the lion turned on him, resulting in his tragic death. The university has locked the zoo, conducted a mourning procession, and engaged with Olawuyi’s family.

The management assured necessary actions would be taken, and a committee, including Olawuyi’s union representative, will address raised concerns. The lion was later shot by a security operative.
