Residents of Jos who have been relieved of a loose lion scare are now angry that the Lion was killed. Others say that a tranquilizer would have been used to tame the lion and return it to its confinement.
Reactions on social media reflect the anger of people who have visited the Lion personally, saying its execution was ruthless.
However, here is a reaction that is quite unusual but typical of a partisan Nigerian to do. See FB post below that blames the APC for the death of the Lion.
