The House of Representatives has called on the Federal Ministry of Environment and the National Wildlife Park to provide immediate and long-term solutions to address the menace of elephants invading farmlands in some parts of Borno State annually.

The call followed the adoption of a motion on matters of urgent public importance at the plenary on Thursday by the member representing the Bama/Ngala/Kala Balge Federal Constituency, Zainab Gimba (APC, Borno).

Zainab said the elephants come from Waza National Park in Cameroon annually, from where they move through the route in Ngala and Kala Balge local government areas of Borno State.

She said, “In the cause of their movement, they destroy crops and other farm produce, thus affecting the means of livelihood of the people in the areas. 

“The destruction of these farms may further precipitate untold hardship on the people in food security, considering that these places are under military control.

“Attempts were made by the conservator general to acquire some equipment meant to scare away the elephants which in effect will curtail damage to crops and other food products on the farm fields.”
