The Senegalese Customs has seized between 5 kg cocaine in the offices of an international courier company (DHL) at Yoff in the northwestern parts of the capital Dakar, security sources said on Thursday.

The packet containing the drug was on its way of transit, coming from Cape Verde and destined for Britain.

The Senegalese Customs in collaboration with other services have launched an investigation.

Close to a ton of hashish coming from Nigeria was seized last month by the Senegalese Customs at the Dakar Port.

The Senegalese capital has become a major transit point for drugs coming from Latin America and destined for Europe, according to Customs officials.
