The Managing Director of Kano Zoological Garden, Alhaji Usman Gwadabe, has announced that a team of experts have arrested the escaped lion from the zoo around the city center.
The lion, which escaped from the Zoological Garden late last night, caused panic among residents of the area.
Up this morning, the ever-busy zoo with shops, filling stations, including the popular Ado Bayero Shopping Mall were padlocked with nobody around the place.
The lion, which was retrieved around the city area was said to have behaved itself without attacking or trying to caused havoc.
The Managing Director said the lion has been taken back to the zoo and residents can now have some reliefs to go about their normal businesses.
