Two persons are in the grips of the Damongo divisional police command in the Savannah Region for killing a Buffalo inside the Mole National Park.

The two poachers, from the Larabanga Community, 5 kilometres away from the park have been identified as Mumin Baharu and Osman Ibrahim aka Vuga. They were arrested by the rangers of the Mole National Park on April 9, 2022.

The Poachers, according to sources have been on the wanted list of managers of the Park for some time now.

According to one of the rangers involved in the arrest of the two, (name withheld), the Rangers on a normal patrol in the park heard a gunshot from the Poachers and rushed to the scene and saw a 4- man team of Poachers on a particular stream who had shot and killed the Buffalo and were about to share the booty.

Two of the poachers managed to escape arrest and are currently at large.

The shotgun used to kill the Buffalo has been confiscated from the Poachers. The two Poachers will be processed for court later on Thursday.

Poaching in the Mole National Park is indiscriminate. Authorities report the vast majority of poaching at Mole National Park is either for the bushmeat trade or is local subsistence poaching.

Authorities of the park, the biggest wildlife Conservative area in West Africa, have been battling the menace of poaching for years now.
