Ex-National Bank boss Munir Ahmed released after overnight detention
Former National Bank of Kenya CEO Munir Ahmed was Friday morning released on police bond after he spent hours at the Milimani Law Courts cells after he was arrested Thursday night while trying to sneak out of the country.
Munir, who was sacked in April this year as a banker over claims of financial malpractices, was allegedly travelling for holidays when he was intercepted at the airport.
Through his lawyer, Paul Muite, Munir said that he had informed the police of his planned holidays travel with his family.
He has accused the state of harassing him and threatened legal action.
The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has asked the police to submit his file for perusal and guidance on the next course of action.
Munir was sacked alongside five other managers after the bank made losses amounting to billions.
