In Nigeria the drill, Mandrillus leucophaeus leucophaeus, is restricted to the forests of Cross River State. Due to heavy hunting pressure to supply the commercial bushmeat trade the drill is increasingly rare and has been classified as endangered.  Drills still survive in the Oban Division of Cross River National Park, the Mbe Mountains and Afi Mountain Wildlife Sanctuary.  There are no recent records of drill from the Okwangwo Division of Cross River National Park.
