Customs officials seized 15 kilograms of cocaine at Douala International Airport on Tuesday, with an estimated street value of XAF600 million ($1 million at current US rates), according to state broadcaster CRTV.

The drug, found on a Turkish Airlines flight bound for Sri Lanka, was hidden in boxes and cosmetic bottles packed in eight cartons with a total gross weight of 130 kg, according to public media reports.

Drug seizures and confiscations of other illicit goods have become commonplace at Douala airport since the establishment of an airport anti-trafficking cell (CAAT) in 2016. The unit’s mission is to combat international drug trafficking by enhancing detection and interdiction capabilities at airports, as well as improving post-seizure investigative capacities. Since its inception, the CAAT has intercepted shipments of cocaine, counterfeit medicines, ivory, and pangolin scales, among other prohibited items.
