Detectives drawn from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Monday arrested a man they described as a notorious fraudster who has been operating at the Coast.

Mr Fahmi Salim, 34, was arrested in connection to various cases of members of the public being swindled of more than Sh11million.


In a statement on its official Twitter account, the DCI said that Mr Salim was fished out of his hideout in Nyali.

“Following numerous complaints by members of the public of being defrauded money and property, detectives based at Mombasa commenced investigations and arrested a notorious fraudster namely Fahmi Salim Said at his hideout at Beach Road apartment in Nyali,” DCI said in a statement.
