The gendarmerie arrested four Gabonese on September 29 in Kango, in possession of 4 ivory tusks that they were about to sell. Currently in custody at the Kango Gendarmerie Brigade, the four accomplices, all of Gabonese nationality, risk up to 10 years in prison.
They are called Yvon Mabicka Mougongou, Paulin Mangui, Jan René Mavitsi and Fernand Yombet. Residing in Fougamou, in Ngounié, these four individuals of Gabonese nationality were arrested on September 29 in Kango, in the Estuary, caught in the act of possessing 4 ivory tusks that they were about to sell.
The facts took place around 10 am, in a place where two of the four accomplices had met. Informed of the holding of an illicit transaction in elephant ivory, the agents of the Kango gendarmerie brigade, and those of the Eaux et Forêts cantonment, with the support of members of the NGO Conservation Justice, have put together a team. The team therefore deployed to the location indicated, with a view to arresting the suspected traffickers.
Currently in police custody at the Kango Gendarmerie Brigade, they will be brought before the prosecution of the special court to answer for the facts of detention and attempted ivory marketing. They face up to 10 years in prison, in accordance with the law in force.
