Kasarani DCIO Mwenda Meme revealed that the foreigners had set up businesses near the universities with the intent to distribute the drugs.

The proprietor of a popular night club behind the Thika Road Mall (TRM) was also arrested on the allegation that he was aiding the immigrants.

Detectives also stated that the immigrants had been terrorising residents as they were linked to a spate of robberies in the area.

Citizen Digital reported that the raid followed a shake-up at the police station with the former leadership accused of being in bed with the criminals.
