Yoruba language was spoken in the video and when the elephants turned around to chase them, that was when they started running helter skelter with the popular yoruba slogan..." egba wa o" (make una save us o)!!

We are sure they came back to pick the phone they were using to record much later! cheesy

We hope the villagers won't hack them down in 24 hours.

Like some hungry people in Bayelsa murdered and butchered the BIGGEST whale ever to come across any shore in Nigeria.
Nigerians can kill and eat living anything!

In saner climes, elephants like this should be in the Zoo for Krissake!

On a lighter note,
Watching the Video will surely crack ya ribs! cheesy grin wink

It is true. For those who don’t believe it happened in Nigeria.
The Forests of Ogun and Ondo state are one of the few places left in all West Africa where elephants still exist and roam in the wild.

These are forest elephants, which were once thought to be the same with their savannah cousins on eastern and southern Africa. But upon further investigation and genomic profiling, have been found to be a different sub-species with subtle differences.

Unfortunately, I am sad and very much frightened for their safety, now that they are being seen by everyday people- knowing the kind of country this is. cry
In a locale like Naija, sometimes it is better for people not to know that certain things even exist... was it not barely 2 weeks ago that Bayelsa people massacred a beached whale to the bones, as if common fish is what they haven’t eaten before.

Much love and respect to the great one. Like Yorubas would say; “Ajanaku ti n mi igbo kiji-kiji” The movers and shakers of the African bush.

This is a heart-warming video. How can children be reading about elephants n tigers in books without ever seeing one?

Hope the ogun government can swiftly pass a bill for life imprisonment with no option of fine for anyone caught killing the wildlife and their accomplice.

Of course we have elephants in Nigeria. Forest or Bush Elephants I think. I remember Ogun State farmers complaining one time like that that these elephants have been destroying their farm produce.
