3 traffickers arrested with 14 kg ivory

A trafficker arrested with two large pieces of ivory, weighing 14 kg, in the capital city. He denounced two other traffickers. One of them tried to escape the arrest, hiding in a church, but thanks to persistence of the operation team he was arrested four days later in a bar near the Nigerian border. The third one was arrested at the beginning of the next month. The seized ivory has been stolen from a government storage on Benin-Nigeria border.
