In these times that Nigerian workers are threatening to lock down government business over N30,000 minimum wage, the son-in-law of President Muhammadu Buhari has brandished his new pet, a cub lion worth N53. 3 million.
While others prefer to acquire parrots, dogs, cats as pets, Ahmed Indimi, President Muhammadu Buhari’s son in law, has chosen to acquire a white lion cub.
The president’s son-in-law took to his social media to share photos of a white lion cub captioning it, “my new pet” and “Love the new pet” in separate posts.
White lions are a rare colour mutation of Southern African lions and thought to have been indigenous to the Timbavati region of South Africa for centuries.
According to statistics made available online by data Belarus Feed, the price of a white lion cub costs as much as $140,000, which is equivalent to N53,340,000.
They are endangered species opened to poaching.
