About 90 elephants have invaded Dakutu Community in the Talensi District of the Upper East Region destroying farmlands and trees.

GBC’s correspondent Samuel Ayammah reports that their presence in the region is an annual routine visit by the animals to the area.

“We don’t know where the animals come from. They have been in Dakutu for the past one month now. They are in the forest causing a lot of destruction in the area.”

“Residents are not happy because according to them, they have reported the incident to the wildlife division of the forestry commission in the region for a very long time but nothing has happened.”

He reports that the invasion is something that residents have been experiencing for the past two, three years but authorities are yet to address the annual ritual.

“Because the elephants eat Shea nuts, they have pulled the Shea trees down and destroyed almost sixty to seventy percent of the trees when you go to Dakutu forest. The farmers here cannot move to their farms for fear of these elephants,” he added.

More soon.
