Named “Lion King Lalong”, the one-and-half-year old cube was named after the governor in appreciation of his commitment to tourism development in the state.

The state commissioner for tourism, Mr. Peter Mwankon disclosed this to newsmen in Jos.
Mr. Mwankon, who went into the history of the cube said it replaced the lion, which was killed last year after its escape from cage during routine feeding in the Jos Wildlife Park.

Regretting and defending the lion’s killing, he said its replacement was obtained through barter arrangement with the Sanda Kyarimi Zoological Park in Maiduguri, Borno, adding that plans are underway to forestall future escape and killings.

His word, “The administration of Gov. Simon Lalong is poised to ensure the escape saga of last year does not occur again and more varieties of animals are acquired.

“The state government is also working toward getting tranquilizers in quelling animals when an escape incident occurs rather than kill them.

“Such drugs require some bureaucratic process to get because of its function.”
