Elephant invasion kills one person in Upper East Region

One person is feared dead as elephants invade Garu Timpani, a community in the Upper East Region, Friday.

An eyewitness told Joy News about eight (8) elephants entered the town and crushed mud houses and killed Issiku Tangari.

“As at now the body is just covered. They [elephants] stepped on him [Tangari] and all his intestines have been removed. He has been destryoed as if they used cutlass to cut him…The body has been destroyed”, the eyewitness told Joy News.

Residents are reportedly fleeing the area in fear.

Although the residents of Garu Timpani say they are unsure where they animals may be coming from, the eyewitness said he suspects they may have come from Nyakpanduri or Paga – all close to Ghana’s border with neighboring Burkina Faso.

Upper East Correspondent, Albert Sore, said police have been deployed to the village to bring the situation under control.
