JOHN ALLOTEY: One of our assistant managers on his normal tour of the zoo around the enclosure where we have the lions and noticed that someone has entered the enclosure, a male. And then he was being held by the neck by one of the lions, the male lion. He quickly informed his superiors and the case was reported to the Achimota police.

A team from the Achimota police was dispatched to the zoo. And they have been here for a while, have taken pictures and all the information required. And then the body has been conveyed to the morgue. It was realized that the person is dead.
