County Policy Commander Samuel Anampiu said two of them were arrested along Kisumu-Kakamega road while the other three were picked along Kisumu-Nairobi road at Ahero centre.

KISUMU, Kenya, May 10 – Five Pakistani nationals were Sunday detained in Kisumu as police commenced a probe on their presence in the country.

County Policy Commander Samuel Anampiu said two of them were arrested along Kisumu-Kakamega road while the other three were picked along Kisumu-Nairobi road at Ahero centre.

He said the operation was mounted by the anti terror unit in conjunction with a security multi agency.

Anampiu said it is still too early to declare the suspects terrorists.

“I can confirm that yes, we arrested two Pakistanis nationalities, at about 1100hrs along Kisumu – Kakamega Road near Mamboleo roundabout following our intelligence reports,” he said.

“We again through our intelligence collection had an operation along Kisumu-Ahero Road and we managed to arrest three more totaling to five so far,” he added.

The operation led to a traffic snarl up along the busy road running into several hours.

Anampiu appealed to the locals to volunteer information to the police to help beef up security.
