Police chase of drug traffickers in Kilifi kills one

Drug traffickers who were found transporting 10 bags of bhang in Kilifi ended up in a police chase that killed one on the spot.

The bhang transportation, considered as one of the biggest seized in the county in 2019, was caught along a Mariakani road.

Kilifi South OCPD Joseph Muriuki said the high-speed chase started at Mariakani and ended tragically at Mavueni after the suspect’s vehicle veered off road and overturned, killing one of the occupants on the spot.

“The vehicle had escaped a police barrier in Mariakani. It was during the chase that the vehicle lost control and overturned,” said Mr Muriuki.

The driver of the vehicle has been arrested.
