A Nigerian drug baron who is wanted in Nigeria for drug trafficking has been arrested in Kenya after he sneaked into the country.
A Nigerian drug baron has been arrested in Nairobi on Wednesday afternoon after he had secretly made his way into the country.
According to The Kenyans, Mr Emmanuel Peter Lovembe, who was deported from Kenya in 2013 on Presidential orders, was nabbed by police officers in Kayole Estate. He has been handed over to the Anti-Terrorism Police Unit (ATPU) and the Anti-Narcotics Unit (ANU) for interrogation.
In June 2013, Lovembe was arrested and deported together with controversial businessman Anthony Chinedu for involvement in narcotics trafficking under the President’s order.
However, Lovembe sneaked into the country three months later and was arrested in Donholm estate.
He was arrested together with a Kenyan woman, Ms Virginia Wakini who had just arrived from Tanzania via Namanga border when police raided their house.
Lovembe confessed that he used different identification documents to enter the country and was helped by Wakini.
