Police have confirmed that the Nigerian drug dealer arrested in Nairobi was found with 425 sachets of heroin.
Enobemhe Emmanuel Peter was among drug lords deported in June together with Anthony Chinedu for involvement in narcotics trafficking and was arrested in Nairobi’s Donholm area at the weekend.
Peter was arrested alongside a Kenyan woman.
The two are expected in court today before police ask for permission to deport Peter again.
The woman had just arrived from Tanzania via Namanga border when police raided her house.
According to the Head of the Special Crimes Prevention Unit Noah Katumo, they were trailing the woman on Friday night when they stumbled on Peter as he took refuge in her house.
When questioned, Peter confessed to police he came back to Kenya late last month through the Namanga border using a different passport.
But the passport was not stamped, an indication he did not come through the immigration desk.
He told police he flew back to Tanzania from Nigeria where he stayed for three days before driving to Namanga and later went through a forest into Kenya.
The woman’s documents show she went to Tanzania on September 10 and came back in 13 with luggage that Peter had left there, which had the 425 sachets of heroin.
“They use the Kenyan women to transport the drugs and we urge them to desist,” said Katumo.
Peter told journalists it’s the woman who put pressure on him to come back.
The Nigerian was among 30 other foreigners who were deported in June for alleged involvement in international crimes, including drug trafficking.
And police are yet to trace the whereabouts of another Nigerian who sneaked back into Kenya days after he was deported.
“We still fear he may harm the officers who participated in his deportation or other people in general. Efforts to locate him are ongoing,” said Nairobi Area Head of CID Nicholas Kamwende.
When the Nigerians were deported on June 3, they caused drama in Lagos prompting the detention of the plane that flew them there.
The plane and its crew, immigration officials and police were released after two weeks on the intervention of President Goodluck Jonathan.
