Escaped chimpanzee still on the run, likely to get shot tomorrow if not re-captured.
One of the Chimpanzees that escaped from confinement at the Jos zoo may likely get shot tomorrow.
In the early hours of this morning two chimpanzees escaped from their cage and were harassing passersby at the premises of the Jos National Museum and Monuments.
One of the chimps was successfully lured back into its cage while the other escaped running out of the Zoo premises and perching on a tree in a residential area located at west of mines neighborhood not far from the zoo premises.
All efforts by the men of the Plateau State Fire Service to capture it alive proof abortive. After 8 hours of trying, one of the firemen climbed the tree and cut down the branch the Chimp was hanging on making it to fall then running into the grove close to the zoo.
As at the time of this report, the Chimpanzee was nowhere to be found after disappearing into the thick bushes.
A reliable source informed our reporter that the Chimpanzee may likely get shot tomorrow if sighted.
