Freedom Jacob Caesar Reacts After Wildlife Move To Seize Tigers
Nana Kwame Bediako, a business entrepreneur also known as Freedom Jacob Caesar Cheddar, has admitted to keeping two tigers in his home.
He claims he had the two tigers for six months.
The presence of two tigers in Wonder World Estates, Avenue Lincoln, near the British High Commission in Ridge, Accra, had alarmed some residents.
A section of the public took to social media to draw the attention of the Ghana Police Service to the situation, which they believe is illegal.
In response, Freedom Jacob Caesar stated that he followed all procedures when bringing the animals to Ghana in order to increase tourism.
In an interview with TV3, he stated that he bought them with the intention of making Ghana the first country on the continent to have them.
“First and foremost, you are correct; I have two tigers that I purchased in a bidding war between Ghana and Dubai. I was the private sector representative who sparked my interest in purchasing these two animals. But we went through the procedure; the animals are seven months old and still in their infancy.”
“I went in to purchase these animals in order to increase the value of tourism in our country.” I wanted to enter the Safari World by ensuring that Ghana is the first country in West Africa, East Africa, and Central Africa, aside from South Africa, to have these animals.”
“We wanted to be the first to have it, so I ordered both the male and female versions.” I’ve been storing them for six months. I brought experts from outside to create a safety cage for these animals, so they don’t become dangerous to the public.”
