A €38 million cocaine haul from 2021 was hidden by corrupt police officers at Cote d'Ivoire's Port of Abidjan... and then resold. How did this happen?

Did the gendarmerie commander in charge of the anti-drug unit at the port of Abidjan conceal part of a large cocaine seizure made in 2021? This is what Ivorian investigators suspect.
