A primary school teacher has been arrested by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) and Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) possessing two elephant tusks.
The teacher was nabbed at the weekend alongside four other suspects while looking for a potential customer to buy the tusks.
Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti said they arrested five suspects in the operation.
Their arrest came hardly a month after KWS reported that an elephant had been killed by suspected poachers around Emotoroki area in the county.
The suspects were using a vehicle and motorcycle owned by the deputy school head.
