The Lion that escaped from the wild life park in Jos, on Wednesday was shot shot dead.
The Plateau state Tourism Corporation, Deputy general Manager, Timothy Nyam confirmed this to reporters.
The escaped lion did not harm anyone, but caused panic in the town as many residents stayed indoors for fear of being attacked.
[Still surprised. They could have tried to neutralize the lion, the poor lion has been in the zoo since 1972, what a waste.]
