  • Please find and arrest the evil humans that murdered this chimpanzee family! They also should be charged with the maximum penalty!

  • You know it is a great shame that no one in any state government within the boundaries of Nigeria really care what happens to the poor old chimps, and all the other wildlife for that matter.
    The Nigerian hunters in the Omo Forest and the adjoining forest reserves have been doing this kind of thing for years and every one just turns a blind eye.
    One group after another have tried to impress upon the Ogun State Government, the value and potential of having groups of chimpanzee, especially so close to Ijebuode, Abeokuta, and Lagos.
    but I guess that’s africa.
