A Nigerian national has been arrested while carrying cocaine valued at more than Sh5 million.
Police say he had arrived at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport from Lagos, Nigeria when he was stopped.
He has so far emitted 83 pellets of white powder that has been tested and shown to be cocaine.
The arrest is the latest in a series of others that have happened in the past days.
Most traffickers arrested at JKIA are usually on transit.
But the one arrested was coming to Nairobi indicating the market is here.
Police say he is expected in court on Monday to face charges of trafficking narcotics.
