200 elephants sighted in Borno a sign of re-emerging peace — Commissioner
No fewer than 200 elephants have been sighted in Borno close to the borders with Cameroon and Chad by the United Nations Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS).
WITHIN NIGERIA learnt that the elephants were spotted moving across the forest of Rann, Kalabalge Local Government Area of Borno State.
“In 2014, Abubakar Shekau’s faction of Boko Haram set up camp in the Sambisa Forest that was formerly a game reserve the size of Belgium and The Netherlands.”
While reacting to the development, Kabiru Wanori, Borno State’s environment commissioner, told RFI that “It shows that peace is slowly re-emerging.”
