DCI sleuths staged a raid at Plan 254 Club in Kilimani, Nairobi on Thursday morning.
Plan 254 Club Kilimani: DCI detectives arrest Flashy Nairobi Tycoon Steve Oduk during a raid at the club
Bars of Gold seized
The detectives seized 1 million US dollars believed to be fake and 147 fake gold bars.
During the morning raid, the officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations arrested flamboyant businessman Steve Oduk.
He has previously been linked to a gang nabbed with fake dollars by the DCI.
Oduk shocked officers when he totally failed to provide an identity card and only told the officers that his name was Stephen Mark.
In the charge sheet presented at the Milimani Law Courts, the name “Oduk” was added to those he had provided.
It remains unclear why he failed to hand over either his ID card or a waiting card to prove that he had applied for a new card.
According to the Kenya law, one is supposed to apply for a waiting card as soon as their ID card gets lost, but he did not apply for it.
Court documents revealed that the person identified as Stephen (Steve) Mark is not new to the court corridors.
An example is on October 15, 2013, a person identified as Stephen Mark Oduk, dressed in police uniform, was part of a gang in Nairobi that kidnapped two children of Indian origin.
He was in a group of other five men who included a police officer who had been interdicted from the service for being part of a gang that stole millions from an ATM machine in Nairobi.
