The Cameroon customs officials have seized tones of illicit drugs and fuel in circulation in the town of Douala this Sunday 14th April 2019.
The customs service released a statement on Monday 15th April 2019 stating that the move is to curb the inflow of overseas dangerous and illicit drugs and goods into the country.
According to the report presented by the customs officials, the seizure included over one hundred thousand and fifty one tramadol pills, one hundred thousand and seventy two combiart pills and seven thousand litters of fuel.
The operation was successfully executed thanks to the collaboration of the Cameroon Marine and the Cameroon Customs Brigade in charge of combating crime.
Reports say the illicit goods were ferried from a neighbouring country through the Tiko seaport before being transported to Douala through a heavy duty truck.
Customs officials say the suspects have been arrested and are under police custody.
The officials say tramadol is one of the most commonly abused drugs in Cameroon and it is quickly making its way to school premises.
