Kenyan police arrest Nigerian man for carrying suspicious money worth N454M

Wahala (trouble) has landed for a Nigerian man who was arrested at Jomo Kenyatta Airport last week Friday for carrying suspicious money worth over N454M (KSH 100million). 

On Wednesday, A High Court in Kenya gave an ordered that the money gotten from the Nigerian man, Muaza Bala, at Jomo Kenyatta Airport should be deposited at Central Bank of Kenya. 

According to Sahara Reporters and Kenya Report, Bala was apprehended at the airport last week Friday with cash and assets, which according to the authorities might have been gotten from money laundering or any other form of crime. 

Muaza Bala was heading to Dubai, UAE, when he got arrested by the police. According to him, he says the money was for his business; but he had no enough evidence or documents to prove it. 

DCI says: "To effectively investigate the matter, DCI Transnational Organized Crime Detectives are working with the ARA. The seized cash is believed to be from International Criminal Cartels."

ARA on Thursday filed a case in court seeking orders to freeze the cash gotten from Bala. The monies gotten from Bala were in the following currencies; $880,000, N63,000 and 60,000 Euros. 

ARA said in a statement: "His failure to declare that he was carrying such a huge amount or documents to support the legitimacy of the cash, raises suspicion of money laundering."
