By Thomas Domah, Nimba County

Several citizens of District#8, Nimba County are said to be living in fear due to constant attacks from Chimpanzees that have left at least three persons hospitalized.

Rep. Younquoi notes that he has applied all efforts for the Forestry Development Authority (FDA) to control the movement species but there has been no fruitful result, as the wild animal continues to attack women and children some of them hospitalized.

“It’s about time for you guys to organize yourself to start killing chimpanzees [that are] causing trouble for my children. We the men in this area, it’s about time to do so”, he urged his kinsmen.

Over the past four months eight persons, including women and children have been raped, wounded hospitalized from Chimpanzees’ attacks.
