A Nigerian content creator, Queen Xtelle, has taken to social media to seek justice for her dog, an American bully, who was allegedly shot dead by her estate security in Lagos.
Queen took to her Instagram page to share an emotional video of her dog, Roxie, and relayed what transpired before it was fatally killed.
She said the dog strayed from the house, became disoriented, and wandered into another compound within the estate.
After it went missing, they launched a search for the dog and contacted the estate security to help in the search.
However, when the dog was eventually found, her estate security shot it three times in the neck because the estate has a law that requires them to kill any wandering dog.
Queen, who was heartbroken by the incident, went online to mourn her tragic death, and questioned why they would kill a dog because it simply strayed away from home. She also vowed to pursue justice for Roxie.
Read her full post below,
“Two nights ago, Roxie broke out of cage, wandered off and lost her way home(first time ever)We looked everywhere but couldn’t find her and so we informed the estate security just incase they find her. Next morning, we got a call from the estate security saying they found our dog.
Apparently, she went into someone’s compound and passed the night there. Not like she harmed or attack anyone. My brother got there only to be told the estate law states that if a dog is found wandering, they should kill it. Really???
We’ve been living in the same estate for over two years, no one mentioned this barbaric law before now. My brother pleaded with them to release the dog to him but they refused. Roxie got scared and hid when she saw men with weapons coming to attack her. These evil men shot my helpless dog thrice in the neck all for what? Cos she strayed? They shot her in presence of my brother and when she ran towards my brother for help, they chased him away😭 what sort of wickedness is this? If she was aggressive, she’d definitely attack before and after the shot. But you all can see clearly in this video that my poor baby was fighting for her life😭 I’m so broken 💔
Do you know how much I’ve spent in training this dog? Do you know how costly it is to feed a bingo in this economy? Talk more of an American bully😭 Asides from the money, effort, time and resources wasted in training this dog, this dog was a member of my family. She was an emotional support to us all and you shot her just like that? My heart can’t take this💔 I’ve never felt any pain like this before😭
I can’t let this go. I will fight with everything I have even though I know I may not get justice cos this is Nigeria💔 I need people to know that dogs are worth more than animals who bark. I need these perpetrators to PAY. Please help me repost and tag anyone you know that can help this post go viral. I need justice for my Roxie💔”
