Police in Marsabit County on Wednesday arrested a presidential hopeful and Isiolo businessman over possession of bhang worth Ksh.13 million.
According to police, the suspect; Jeffer Isaak Sori, was nabbed at a road block near Marsabit town driving a Toyota Prado Landcruiser that was towing a trolley carrying 445 kilograms of bhang valued at Ksh.13,350,000.
He reportedly declined to allow the officers manning the KBC barrier to search the trolley, thus prompting them to impound his vehicle.
“…Upon requesting him for search to be conducted he refused and this prompted officers to escort the said vehicle to Marsabit Police Station where thorough search was conducted and a total of 445 kgs of street value Ksh.13,350,000 of narcotics and psychotropic substance were recovered hidden in a trolley,” reads a police report on the matter.
Isaak, who has also expressed interest in the 2022 presidential race, was arrested and is expected to be arraigned.
