Former Chief Executive Officer of National Bank of Kenya Munir Ahmed was Thursday night arrested at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport while attempting to leave the country.
Police said they had been informed he was fleeing the country with no intentions to return.
However, Munir maintains that he intended to travel to Dubai to visit his family.
He claimed that police had returned his passport which enabled him to arrange for the trip and wondered why they were arresting him.
He was detained at Kileleshwa police station amid plans by his friends and relatives to have him released.
Munir and five managers were relieved of their duties when the Bank made losses.
Meanwhile, investigations against managers have been completed and they will soon be arraigned in court.
