The Kenyan Police have arrested 33 Nigerians for illegal migration while pursuing leads on an incident in which drugs are being sent from Nairobi, the country’s capital to other parts of the world. 

The 33 Nigerians who were arrested by the Kenyan Police on Thursday at Kasarani had allegedly been posing as students of International University-Africa  and Kenyatta University .  

Reports say the Commanding Officer in charge of sub-counties in Kasarani, Peter Kimani said the suspects were arrested by anti-narcotics detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

“When they arrived, they declared they were students at the universities but our investigations have shown they are in other illegal businesses,” Kimani said.

He further disclosed that the suspects have since been taken to Kiambu law courts near Kiambu Police Station as officials process their papers for deportation back to Nigeria.
