A chimpanzee has escaped from the Jos National Park injuring a security man while trying to prevent the animal from leaving the park.
Investigation revealed that the chimpanzee was not adequately fed and had to escape to search for food.
Though, the Chimpanzee, according to findings is still around the park but effort to bring it back into the cage has not yielded.
The General Manager of the State Tourism Corporation, Mr. John Doy as well as the Park Manager could not be reached as press time.
However a staff at the park said, “This morning, a chimpanzee left its cage but it did not leave the vicinity of the Park. Obviously it was hungry because there has been insufficient food for the animals in recent times.”
