Two Nigerians arrested in Juja for ‘defrauding’ Kenyans

Two Nigerians were on Saturday arrested by detectives for allegedly defrauding members of the public in Juja, Nairobi.

Confirming the arrest, Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti said the two Nigerians, who were in the company of a Kenyan lady, were arrested in their Witeithie house in Juja after a tip-off from the members of the public.

The detectives recovered over 70 assorted sim cards from various service providers, 10 mobile phones, subscriber sim registration forms, several Kenyan ID cards and some Kenyan currency.

DCI said the suspects call random numbers claiming to inform their victims about a certain promotion that is going on, send them some cash to entice them, before conning them large sums of money.

Kinoti said they rarely pick calls after conning someone or at times they put off their phones.

The three will be arraigned in court on Monday.

Last year, 19 Nigerians were also arrested in Umoja, Kasarani and Roysambu Estates within Nairobi for engaging in electronic fraud targeting Kenyans.
