Abdisamid Ahmed Mohamed, Patrick Itlas Aringo alias Collins, Gilbert Kiruja alias Moha, Mohamed Muhumed Abikar alias Bashir and Allan Makikha alias Dan appeared before Milimani Chief Magistrate Douglas Onyina and denied the charges.

They were accused of stealing the money from Gala Forex Bureau, which belongs to Ismael Mohammed Mohamud.

The five are accused of falsely obtaining 250,000 US Dollars equivalent to Sh32,887,500.00 from Mahamud on February 4, 2023, at Wawazi court apartment in South B within Nairobi county.

It is alleged that they committed the offence jointly with others not before court, with intent to defraud.

The charge states that they pretended to be in a position to exchange the dollars to Kenya shillings at a higher rate of Sh 129 per one dollar.

Abdisamid was accused of stealing the money on the same day, being an employee of Mahamud, which came into his possession by virtue of his job at the forex bureau.

They were released on a cash bail.
