The estimated seizure of 1 billion 43 million CFA fake medicines including antibiotics and aphrodisiacs occurred on Saturday 23 march, in the night. The Foundiougne Maritime Brigade operated to this very large seizure in one week. Intelligence and a seamless spinning allowed officers to stop the vehicle carrying goods up to Niakhar, on the way Fatick-Bambey. In addition to protecting population mainly the young one from the harmful effects of these illicit drug products, Lieutenant Mamadou Lamine Sakho’s men had also limited the negative impact of this traffic on the economy.
In this operation, professionalism and commitment of the customs officer Alioune Ndiaye constitute an example, according the Fatick Subdivision Chief, Commander Abdou Thiam.
