Nope - not Leucaena leucocephala. Probably either Acacia macrostachya or another species of Acacia. They are very hybridized in this region.

Locally Leucaena leucocephala is usually referred to as a horse Tamarind since it is brought in by foreign horses. Acacia macrostachya is Kucapa Gbagu however in Gourmantche but it also can be referred to as komkompienu or komkombwoni for its thorns.
