Operatives of the Kenyan Police have arrested 33 Nigerian over their alleged illegal stay in the country.
The middle-aged Nigerian men were arrested on Thursday morning at Kasarani, a residential area in Nairobi, capital of Kenya.
Naija News understands that the Nigerians were arrested in the residential area where they had been reportedly staying after arriving on different dates.
Speaking to journalists, the police commanding officer of the sub-counties in Kasanrani, Peter Kimani, said the suspects were arrested by anti-narcotics detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
Kimani said the suspects had been posing illegally as students of International University-Africa (USIU) and Kenyatta University (KU) and operating businesses “with the intention of selling drugs”.
“When they arrived they declared they were students at the universities but our investigations have shown they are in other illegal businesses,” Kimani said.
