Dr Eric Adede, a former aspirant for Gor Mahia chairmanship, is among the six suspects who were arrested over the Sh2 billion fake money scandal on Tuesday, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has revealed.

Adede, a lawyer by profession, is the owner of the safe box which was used to hide the amount at Barclays Bank’s Queensway Branch, Nairobi.

Others arrested include Mr. Ahmed Shah – Fake Investor, Ms Elizabeth Muthoni, Ms Irene Wairimu Kimani, Mr Boaz Ochich – Bank official and Mr Charles Manzi-Bank official.

Also held for statement recording is a witness who would have been conned.

Adede contested the Gor Mahia chairmanship against the incumbent Ambrose Rachier for the first time in December 2013 in an election which was cancelled after chaos ensued at the Nyayo Stadium.

He faced off with Rachier, also a city lawyer, for the second round early 2014 losing narrowly to the long serving chairman of K’Ogalo.

Adede has not associated openly with the club since then and did not contest the 2016 election.

He contested for the Homa Bay Town Constituency parliamentary seat during the 2017 elections as an independent candidate.

Adede also claims to be legal consultant at Colliers International.

He also describes himself as executive director at Khulisa Solutions.
