The species is listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a threatened category. It is therefore assessed as Least Concern.
Within the western Africa region, the extent of occurrence and area of occupancy are estimated to be above the thresholds for the Vulnerable category (Criteria B), there are probably more than five locations (as the threat of deforestation is occurring in many different areas of south east Nigeria and south west Cameroon and at different rates) and the deforestation is not believed to be causing a population decline at level to qualify for a threatened category under Criteria A (either past, current or future -over 10 years). However the deforestation in the region is extensive and the impacts upon the species need to be monitored. It is currently assessed as Least Concern.
