“Arrangements to extradite the suspect to his home country where he will face justice are in top gear. The Directorate is looking for the next available flight to Khartoum to hand him over to Sudanese authorities,” he added.

In recent months, Kinoti added, the directorate has seen an upsurge in the arrests of international fugitives wanted for major crimes in their home countries.

This comes just a week after one of two men targeted by the US government was apprehended in Nairobi after a tip-off about his hiding place.

Following his arrest, Badru Abdul Aziz Saleh was detained at the Gigiri Police Station.

A Sh233 million bounty was placed on his head and that of Abdi Hussein Ahmed, who is still at large, for trafficking wildlife and narcotics to the United States.

On April 26, the US government offered a Sh233 million ransom for information leading to the arrest or conviction of the two Kenyans.
