There’s the funny slang that has been going around recently– ‘Wetin Musa no go see for gate’– It seems that ‘Musa’ in this particular context is a 2-year-old lion.

The Lion, purportedly owned by an unidentified Indian, was sighted acting as the security guard of a residential house in Lagos.

Members of police force are trying to have the animal relocated and the Indian in question has been invited to the Police station.

One user said: “An Indian man is using a 2years old Lion as security guard in somewhere around Victoria Island, Lagos state. Is this legal? Can a Nigerian try this nonsense in India? Why do we allow these foreigners get away with everything?”

“An Indian in V.I may be prosecuted by Lagos for keeping a Lion in his house. Neighbors alerted the authorities when they started hearing roars of the Lion. Question how did a Lion enter into VI without those same authorities knowing? How will they get the Lion out of the house?”

Another user claimed that there are more Lions in Lagos than many people know, “There’r more Lions 🦁 in the homes of individuals in Nigeria than many people think. At least i know of one rich Nigerian dude who owned 2 in his luxurious mansion at Park View estate back in the days when i lived in Ikoyi.

“Whether the Lions are still there i don’t know! #Lagos”
