Furthermore, a hundred fowls were seized by the agents of the Ministry of Livestock, Fisheries and Animal Industries (MINEPIA) who accompanied the police.

Also, arrests made in this market were not made arbitrarily. “These people who were arrested were surprised in the process of sale, yet knowing that the activity was prohibited,” informs Jean Paul Kamga, Secretary General of the Association of chicken market vendors of Mvog Ada. After the arrests, it appears that this market, at least in the chicken sales sector, became deserted. Not a shadow of a fowl could be seen, much less a trader on counters or in sheds.
