A Nigerian man involved in printing fake US dollars amounting to more than 860,000 fake US dollars (86 million fake papers), has been arrested by the operatives of the Nairobian Police after his house was raided in Kenya in a recent operation.
It was learnt that the fraud suspect was taken to custody after the raid as the hunt on his accomplices continues. Police also suspect that more of the fake papers had already been supplied to the market.
Speaking to correspondents, the Unit head, Noah Katumo said such money is used for political campaigns in the country and affects negatively to the economy.
