Sleuths attached to Mathare police station have arrested six suspects in Mathare Nairobi County in possession of illegal narcotics. This happened when the Police commander for Starehe Sub-County initiated a raid in the area, where its environs are unstable due to being a hub of drugs and illegal activities.
According to the Star, OCS for Mathare police station, William Sirengo in a police report claimed that the areas have been a den of illegal operations and they initiated a raid on Wednesday evening to restore peace in the neighbourhood. The police officers managed to recover narcotics including one kilogram of Heroin, five kilograms of Cannabis sativa and illicit brew. In addition to that, the suspects arrested had alcohol pads, a dagger and NSP Kits in possession.
However, not all suspects were apprehended as others managed to escape from being arrested. The six suspects are now in police custody awaiting to be arraigned in court on Thursday today.
Nonetheless, drug abuse has been a social issue as illegal narcotics are still in the streets despite persistent operations by authorities.
