Police have arrested the mastermind behind the disappearance of new generation passports from job recruitment agencies.
Stephen Obiero was arrested yesterday with 22 passports.
“Stephen Obiero was arrested by detectives based at the directorate of immigration services, following a sudden high demand for the treasured travel document,” the police said.
Preliminary investigations have revealed that the passports are sold to West Africans who are in the country illegally, each at Sh22,000.
“The detectives who had done their homework posed as pidgin speaking West Africans and lured the thug to a matatu along Mfangano street, where the transaction took place,” the police said.

Unbeknownst to the suspect, he was dealing with multilingual undercover agents, speaking a mixture of Yoruba and broken English.
Once the deal was sealed, Obiero was handcuffed and became a guest of the state, much to his dismay.
Most of the passports recovered belong to young female Kenyans who had deposited them at recruitment agencies, for job opportunities in the Gulf states. The immigration detectives are currently tracing the owners of the passports.
