Wanted business tycoon Ali Punjani’s wife arrested in Nyali
Business tycoon Ali Punjani’s wife was on Tuesday arrested at their home in Nyali, Mombasa County over drug trafficking allegations.
She was arrested alongside two other foreigners from Nepal and India.
The arrests come after detectives gained access to Punjani’s palatial home after many hours of wait.
On Monday, the multi-agency team pitched camp in the compound of Punjani’s posh Nyali home.
According to Mombasa Police Commander Johnstone Ipara, they were looking to gain access into the house and search it for drugs.
“We will not leave until we search this house top to bottom and establish that there are no drug substances inside,” said Mr. Ipara.
Police have since urged the Mombasa-based businessman to present himself before any police station in the county to record a statement over drug trafficking allegations.
Reports however indicate that Punjani is allegedly outside the country for treatment.
The arrests come barely a week after a warning by Interior CS Fred Matiangi, on tough action in the region notorious for crime and drug trafficking.
