DCI Tells Curious Kenyan What They Do With Confiscated Narcotics


The Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) has been forced to  reveal what they do with the bales of narcotics that they always seize.

Responding to a query raised by a Kenyan following their announcement that they had confiscated 135 bales of bhang in Nakuru, the DCI explained where the recovered drugs are taken.

In his question, Derrick Lowmex wondered: “DCI Kenya, it’s good you always tell us when you nab all this drugs but it would make more sense if you tell us where you take the?! Or you guys use them?!”

The intelligence unit noted that all recovered items are always kept to be presented before a court of Law as evidence.

They later divulged that upon the conclusion of the case, the court gives direction on what happens to the  impounded goods.

Derrick was however not alone as other netizens also wondered where all the confiscated narcotics are often taken since their is never a public declaration of the destruction of such goods.

However,  some Kenyans went ahead to suggest to the intelligence agency to sell off the confiscated narcotics and help the national government to pay off the accumulated loans.

On Tuesday, the detectives arrested one suspect after nabbing 135 bales of bhang claimed to be worth millions of shillings.
