Co­caine bust

African Independent - - EDUCATION -

COTONOU: Benin se­cu­rity forces have seized 54kg of co­caine from a con­tainer that had ar­rived from Brazil, the pub­lic prose­cu­tor has an­nounced. “There was a sack con­tain­ing 48 pel­lets of a sus­pect prod­uct,” which was seized, Lawani Badirou said. “Tests re­vealed this was co­caine.” West Africa has for over a decade been a tran­sit point for Latin Amer­i­can co­caine en route to Europe. – Reuters
