DCI detectives raid 14 Riverside premises owned by Paul Kobia after tip off on fake gold

Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives on Wednesday raided a premises along Riverside Drive, Kilimani - Nairobi acting on a tip-off from a group of unidentified foreigners.

The premises was said to be the house as well as offices belonging to controversial Nairobi businessman Paul Kobia.

The foreigners alleged that the businessman was peddling fake gold which he had fraudulently sold to them.

Detectives are said to have visited the premises on Tuesday evening for a spy mission that led to the Wednesday raid.

Police barred from entering Paul Kobia's premises

Guards at the location had refused to allow the officers entry into the house which led to a violent break-in by the Serious Crime Unit detectives.

They later made away with some items from the house as some reports indicated that they had struggled to open safes during their search.

Fake gold seizures have become common in the past few months with reports showing that high level politicians and some businessmen are involved.

Ford-Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula is among the politicians who were named when fake gold was seized in a Kileleshwa house that was being guarded by GSU officers.
