Several villagers left homeless
By Thomas Domah, Nimba County
Villagers of Garr Gbalime Town electoral district#2, Nimba County are still recuperating from a shocking experience when a herd of baboons from the forest invaded the village and demolished several huts.
No casualty has been reported, but the New Dawn Nimba County correspondent said the animals caused serious disturbance, leaving panicking residents running for their lives.
The town lack safe drinking water, health facility paved roads, among other basic human needs.
A female victim of the baboon attack, Kou Suah, who lost her home, narrates that they were having a program in the town when suddenly, the baboons, numbering more than five came from the bush and started ransacking and demolishing homes.
Report says more than four houses were destroyed during the attack.
This is said to be the first experience ever in town, according to Madam Suah.
Since Friday, February 4, 2022, up to present, huge population of citizens are displaced in bushes, as the roaming species cause havoc.
Forestry Development Agency authorities and county superintendent Nelson Korquoi declined to comment on the incident when contacted.
A few months ago, citizens of Nimba county electoral district#8, including women and children were similarly attacked by animals from the bush.
District Representative Larry Younquoi at the time ordered citizens to use their single barrel guns to kill the wild animals.
According to Representative Younquoi, the wild animals should be contained by the Forestry Development Authority but the FDA has allegedly failed to act.https://thenewdawnliberia.com/nimba-county-lightning-kills-5-children-in-sanniquellie/ Editing by Jonathan Browne
