The news of hyenas sighted this week across different parts of Lokoja, the Capital of Kogi State, has called for caution amongst residents and restraint from night outings.
This is a developing story, and residents who confirmed sighting the wild animal, said it was seen by 2am around old poly quarters/200 units while eating an animal it killed.
According to Wikipedia, in ordinary circumstances, striped hyenas are extremely timid around humans, though they may show bold behaviors towards people at night.
On rare occasions, striped hyenas have preyed on humans.
Among hyenas, only the spotted and striped hyenas have been known to become Man-eaters.
