Mr Tamba was arrested and deported in 2015 together with Mr Suleiman Musa, Mr Mahmat Tamba and Mr Yahya Kangweri.

Mr Mahmat is also back in the country. His Facebook page has photos showing his activities in Nairobi.

On Monday, Mr Musa Yego, the Flying Squad boss in Nairobi said that the suspect has also been defrauding Kenyans while lying to them that he will make them rich.

“The foreigners have been in the country for over 10 years. We want the owner of the apartment to explain what he knows about them,” Mr Yego said.
