Detectives arrested six suspects believed to be linked to the production of fake national identification cards, academic certificates, refugee registration documents among other illegally produced documents.

Detectives from the Trans National Organised Crime Unit working together with Cybercrime detectives stormed the establishment where the documents were being produced after receiving intel through the toll-free #Fichuakwa DCI hotline.

Preliminary investigations also established the syndicate is also responsible for the influx of countless illegal alien entries into the country.

The DCI has cautioned Kenyan citizens against engaging in such crimes as they threaten the security of the country and its citizens.

DCI also said developing fake papers for unknown individuals with unclear intentions is not only illegal but also immoral.
