Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in Nairobi have arrested six suspects believed to be part of a syndicate involved in printing fake government documents.

According to sleuths, the suspects were arrested on Tuesday, 19th October following a raid on 1st Avenue and 3rd Street, in Eastleigh, Nairobi county.

During the raid, detectives from Transnational Organized Crime Unit backed up by Cybercrime sleuths recovered national identification cards, refugee registration documents, academic certificates and other documents being processed illegally.

Detectives established that the syndicate is also involved in aiding the entry of aliens into the country by processing fake credentials for them.

“The Directorate of Criminal Investigations cautions Kenyan’s engaged in this kind of trade that their actions pose a very serious threat to the public safety and security of their fellow Kenyans,” the DCI said in a statement.

“Developing fake papers for unknown people whose intentions are unclear is not only illegal but immoral.”

The suspects are currently being grilled by detectives at DCI headquarters, before being arraigned in court on Thursday.
