DCI: Traffickers must abandon illegal trade or face severe consequences

0

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has asserted that narcotics traffickers must abandon illegal activities and pursue legitimate business ventures, or else face the relentless force of the law.

This statement follows a series of intensified crackdowns across the country, resulting in numerous arrests and the seizure of large quantities of hard drugs, including bhang, cocaine, heroin, and other club drugs.

In the latest operation, conducted by a joint team of ANU and OSU detectives at the Komarock Phase 2 estate Sunday night, 41 bales of bhang were seized.

The bhang, stashed in gunny bags, was found in House No. 228, belonging to Alah Mohamed Kala, who was taken into custody on suspicion of trafficking.

The seized bhang, weighing 205 kg and estimated to have a street value of Ksh 6.2 million, was processed and marked as evidence, along with a Toyota Noah, registration number KBL 186E, believed to be a proceed of the illegal trade.

The pursuit of Kala’s accomplices is ongoing, as he hopes for a path back to freedom.
