International Fugitive Arrested at University of Nairobi Staff Quarters

Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Monday, June 6, 2022, arrested an international fugitive, facing organized crimes charges in Sudan.

DCI says the fugitive, Mohamed Nagi Mohamed Magzoub, holder of Sudanese passport number P07811549 was flushed out of his hideout in the Nairobi city, following a stealth operation conducted by Transnational and Organized Crimes detectives at the University of Nairobi (UoN) staff quarters.

His arrest, the DCI said, followed information received by police officers via their secure #FichuakwaDCI hotline.

Arrangements to extradite the suspect to his home country where he will face justice are currently in top gear,” noted the DCI, even as it said that it is looking for the next available flight to Khartoum, to hand him over to Sudanese authorities.

DCI further pointed out that it has in recent months registered an increase in arrests of international fugitives wanted for serious crimes in their countries, all courtesy of what it says was the excellent working relationship between the INTERPOL National Central Bureau based at its headquarters and other member countries.

The elevation of the Director General-DCI George Kinoti, to the INTERPOL Executive Committee late last year, has also given a fresh impetus to the relationship between the regional INTERPOL bureau based at DCI headquarters and the Directorate,” DCI said.

On May 31, 2022, police arrested another international fugitive Badru Abdul Aziz Saleh, a/k/a “Badro”.

Badro is among the two most-wanted suspects that the United States announced a million US dollars in reward for information that would have helped lead to his arrest.

He is a Kenyan citizen, born on January 1, 1976.

According to a U.S. federal indictment, in or about August 2018 through about May 2019, Badro and others who were identified during a wildlife trafficking investigation conspired to distribute at least 10 kilograms of heroin to a buyer located in New York.
