"An intelligence driven operation by DCI Detectives in Kilimani has led to the recovery of millions of Fake US Dollars and arrest of seven suspects," read a part of the tweet.

The criminals arrested were identified as Stephen Mark, Noah Amollo, Ian Otieno, Jotham Mugo, Joseph Majanga, Peter Otieno and Kevin Otieno.

The police stated that the criminals will be arraigned in court on Monday.

Kinoti's fake currency claim disregarded

Last month, DCI had arrested six suspects over over Sh2 billion fake currency that was recovered in a personal safe at Barclays bank, Queensway branch in Nairobi.

The sleuths had indicated that the fake notes in 100-US-dollar denominations were found hidden in one of the bank’s safe boxes.

DCI boss George Kinoti had stated that the fake money belonged to a man known as Erick Adede.

Adede through his lawyer, had however noted that the money was not fake.
