  • Kenyan policemen take position during an operation in the Nairobi slum, on October 28, 2017 FILE 
  • Officers drawn from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations have arrested two suspects wanted  in the United Kingdom.

    The two were arrested in Nairobi's upmarket Kilimani area on Wednesday, January 26, following a raid by transnational and organised crimes detectives.

    The two aged 24 and 21 years respectively were reportedly busted in different apartments within the leafy suburb during the raid.

    According to sleuths who acted on intelligence leading to their apprehension, they have been hiding in that area since sneaking into the country back in 2019.

    The duo has been on the radar of British officials to answer to murder charges as they are linked to the killing of a young man who was stabbed and left for dead in the UK. 

    The two are now being processed by DCI detectives before being extradited to the UK to answer to their charges.

    "British officials have been looking for the fugitives to answer to murder charges, after the brutal murder of a young man who was stabbed and left for dead in the U.K," DCI stated.

    The uptown Nairobi estate in recent times has been characterised by increased crime cases ranging from money laundering, drug trafficking among others.

    Also, a number of foreigners and even locals have been nabbed within Kilimani area.

    The arrest of the two comes just days after another wanted fugitive was nabbed in Nairobi.  The fugitive was on police radar over his alleged involvement in the smuggling of individuals to Europe in a human trafficking syndicate.

    The foreigner was nabbed on December 16, after a dragnet was set following reports that he was in Kenya at the time. 

    He was on red alert since 2017 over his involvement in the smuggling of men, women, and children with a wide network in Europe.
