Top Nigerian drug lord arrested in Kenya
Police in Nairobi, Kenya have arrested a suspected Nigerian drug lord, Emmanuel Peter Inobemhe. According to Kenyan media, Inobemhe who was deported from Kenya in 2013 on Presidential orders, was arrested by police officers in Kayole Estate, Nairobi yesterday Wednesday Sept. 28th.
The Police boss at Kayole police command, Ali Nuno, said Inobemhe had been deported twice from Kenya over drug issues and wondered how he came back to the country.
“He says he used Namanga border on both occasions and that is what we want to know how and why. He had been deported in June 2013 before he sneaked back four months later,” said Nuno.
Inobemhe and another Nigerian, Anthony Chinedu, were arrested in 2013 for their involvement in trafficking of hard drugs. Following a Presidential order, Inobemhe, Chinedu and other Nigerians were deported for being in the country illegally.
Inobemhe later sneaked back into the country three months later, but was arrested in Donholm estate with a Kenyan woman. When he was arrested, he revealed that he came to the country from Tanzania via the Namanga border.
