Two people have been arrested after they were found with a lorry-load of cannabis disguised as bags of cement.
Wajir County commissioner Jacob Narengo says the prohibited drug was being ferried from neighboring Ethiopia and was destined for Nairobi. The two were arrested in Hadado division, Wajir West. The lorry bearing registration number KCK 252C was also seized by police.
According to Narengo, the 456 kilos of cannabis have a street value of Ksh4.6 million. The two suspects, identified as Mohamed Oloo (driver, 41) and Ibrahim Burji, 26, were detained awaiting arraignment next week.
