The DCI has arrested a Bahraini national who was found carrying Sh110 million in dollars at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).
According to the authorities, Khalid Jameel Saeed was inbound on an Egyptian flight headed to Manama when he was intercepted.
Information from the Financial Report Centre (FRC), the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), and Customs and Border Control staff led to the arrests.
Apparently, Mr Saeed had attempted to deposit the currency in the bank but failed. Questioned on the same, he responded that he had completed a job in Nairobi and was thus paid in cash.
After questioning, Saeed has been freed although his money is still held by the relevant authorities who are investigating the matter.
