Yesterday, September 19, Cameroon customs authorities announced that agents of the Mbouda mobile brigade (West region) seized a truck "carrying sensitive goods." The seized goods include 99 pairs of rangers and 148 military T-shirts.
The operation that led to the seizure was carried out at 2:42 a.m. at the Babadjou mixed checkpoint.
According to Customs authorities, the goods were concealed, under other miscellaneous items, in a truck en route from Douala to Bamenda in the North-West.
It is worth noting that the North-West is plagued by a separatist conflict since 2017. In that context, the seizure seems all the more crucial given that in several attacks carried out by separatists, the assailants wore military uniforms. In addition, customs officers have often seized ammunition and bomb-making components bound for the crisis-hit North-West and South-West regions.
