BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,2ND OCT 2018-Two Chad nationals and a Kenyan will be held in police custody for  15 days  as police continue with investigation after they were   found in possession of fake currencies worth over Sh1 billion.

They appeared before Nairobi Magistrate Sinkyiak Tobiko on Tuesday who  allowed police to continue holding the three after the prosecution told the court that it needs more time to establish the foreigners’ true identity.

They also wanted to find out whether they have accomplices who are still at large.

The suspects were arrested Monday when police raided an apartment along Brookside Drive.

Police searched  the suspects house  and  managed to recover fake currency in dollars and Euros.

While allowing the application the court noted that “the amount seized is huge and if released it will crumble the economy.”

The case is set to be  mentioned on October 16 for plea taking and further directions.
