A baboon at the Wildlife Park Jos, Plateau State, has escaped and injured a security man at the gate.

A witness told PREMIUM TIMES that the incident occurred in the early hours of Monday.

According to our source, there has been insufficient food for the animals in recent times.

Efforts to reach management of the park as at press time has not been fruitful.

It will be recalled that a lion had last year escape from the park, and was eventually shot dead by a soldier.

Details later…

          Not necessarily with respect to your insults but with respect to your libellous comments.
          You are accusing Buhari of being responsible for Boko Haram.
          What we see is that he degraded them.
          Mark my word: hatred for others will never solve your problems.
          Were you a Muslim you would have benefited from Prophet Muhammad’s, peace be upon him, advice: avoid suspicion, for in most cases suspicion is sin.

            You were brought up on vile language so it seems.
            It is unfortunate, that you can only spew venom.
            You don’t feel any sense of loss that whoever comes across you only benefits from your foul mouth?
            What made you descend this low in life?
