A 2-year-old lion reportedly owned by an unnamed Indian national has been discovered at a residential apartment in Lagos.

Yinka Egbeyemi, the chairman of Lagos State Taskforce on Environmental and Special Offences confirmed the report on Sunday November 17, saying the lion is caged at No 229 Muri Okunola Street in Victoria Island.

Channels Television reported that the Indian national who owns the lion has been invited for questioning.

Law enforcement agents have been deployed to the area as it was further gathered that the state government through the Ministry of Agriculture and Environment is currently trying to evacuate the animal from the building.
