Coast anti-narcotics police nab five more drug barons in Mombasa

MOMBASA (Xinhua) -- Kenya’s anti-narcotics detectives on Monday arrested five most wanted drug barons in the coastal city of Mombasa.

Swaleh Yusuf Ahmed and his wife Asma Abdalla are among the five latest drug lords to be apprehended in the county in the ongoing security operation to eliminate drug lords in the East African nation.

Regional government official Nelson Marwa said the dragnet saw 15 kg of heroin recovered from a store in Bamburi, Mombasa as well as 180,000 U.S. dollars cash believed to be proceeds of narcotics.

"We suspect the money was proceeds of drugs allegedly to be used to bribe law enforcers and to smuggle more narcotics," Marwa said.

Four vehicles suspected to be used to smuggle the drugs were also been recovered in the operation.

The five were arraigned in court on Monday and detained for five days to enable police complete investigation.

The operation was conducted by senior anti narcotics officers behind the arrest and extradition of two Kenyan brothers and two foreigners Pakistani and Indian to the United States.

The authorities have arrested more than eight drug barons in the latest renewed efforts.

Four were deported on Sunday and handed over to Seychelles and South African government and on Sunday.
