Business mogul, Nana Kwame Bediako, popularly known as Freedom Jacob Caesar, says he went through the proper procedure in keeping two tigers in his house.
He has admitted that he is keeping two tigers in his house, but he went through a process before acquiring the tigers.
“First of all, it is right, I have two tigers that I bought on a bid between Ghana and Dubai. I was the representative from the private sector that initiated my interest in purchasing these two animals. But we did go through the process, the animals are seven months old, still at the very young stage.”
“I went in to buy these animals to add the value of tourism in our country. I wanted to go into the Safari World by making sure that Ghana becomes the first country in the whole of West Africa, East Africa, and Central Africa, except for South Africa, which has these animals.”
The Police have revealed that it was working in collaboration with the Wildlife Division of the Forestry Commission to relocate the two tigers.
This comes after some residents at Wonder World Estates, Avenue Lincoln near the British High Commission at Ridge in Accra, filed several complaints about the animals.
“We wanted to be the first that will have it and so, I went in for the male and the female version of it. I have been keeping them for six months now. I brought experts from outside to create a safety cage for these animals, so they don’t become dangerous to the public,” the business mogul said in an interview with Accra-based TV3.
