Four people including two Kenyan women were last night arrested with four kilogrammes of heroin valued at Sh 10 million from a house in Kitsuru area in Nairobi.
The other two include two Nigerians who have been supplying the drugs to the Kenyan women who in turn sold them to university students in the city.
Preliminary findings show the women have been posing as university students to sell the narcotics to other genuine students. Police say the four are expected in court today to face charges of trafficking in narcotics.
The arrest came days after detectives at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport intercepted 5.436 kilos of heroin valued at Sh 14 million from a Tanzanian woman aged 25, who was attempting to smuggle it into Kenya.
