By Juma Mboko

Police have seized Sh100 million consignment of cocaine from a house in Utange, Mombasa.

A 29-year-old female suspect Nuru Murshid Mahfud was arrested during the operation carried out by detectives drawn from the Transnational Organized Crimes and the Anti-Narcotics units.

It remains unclear whether the drug which was packaged in 35 sachets and concealed in suitcases was meant for local consumption or was on transit to a different destination.

Manhunt for other accomplices is underway.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations said more tests on the narcotics will be done at the National Forensic Laboratory.
