Over 300 Kg Of Ivory Intercepted By Security Operatives In Eastern Cameroon

Customs units in the Eastern region of Cameroon just seized a cargo of 114 ivory tusks weighing approximately 300 kg, we learned from official sources. The two smugglers arrested with the cargo had carefully hidden it in a bush taxi.

According to Eitel Pandong, Regional Delegate of the Ministry of Forestry and Fauna in the East, at the current price of ivory on the international market, this cargo can be estimated at roughly FCfa 270 million.


The same cargo of ivory, according to this senior civil servant, indicates that about 80 elephants were killed. According to the two smugglers, the seized ivory tusks come from the Northern region of Congo.
