Ghanaian business mogul, Nana Kwame Bediako, popularly known as Freedom Jacob Caesar has reacted to public outcry over his ownership of two tigers in his home.
Earlier reports were that some residents at Wonder World Estates, Avenue Lincoln near the British High Commission at Ridge in Accra, have expressed worry over the presence of two tigers in the estate believed to be owned Freedom Jacob Caesar.
The presence of the tigers in the community, according to the residents, is making them unsafe.
According to Daily Guide sources, all efforts by the residents to get the owner or the management of the facility to evacuate the tigers have proven futile as on most occasions, their complaints are met with hostile responses.
Some of the residents claim that “the animals stink. Those animals are held inside an apartment where there is no access to proper fresh air. As soon as the door is open, you sniff a strong unpleasant smell emanating from them,” one resident said.
Another resident also said, “They are opened early in the morning and then sent inside around 10am. They pee and poo on the floor. They also make noise which disturbs our sleep.”
Speaking in an interview, Freedom Jacob Caesar stated he bought the two tigers who are 7-months old to boost the tourism in the country.
He added that he didn’t buy them to scare or harm the residents in his area.
He also assured the public the animals are in a safe place and kept under a strong cage which they can’t break through. He added that he has brought in an expert to train the tigers as well.
