By Stephen Astariko

POLICE in Garissa have arrested 105 illegal immigrants from Ethiopia who sneaked in the country through the Moyale boarder.

North Eastern regional CID coordinator Musa Yego said that the immigrants were arrested on Monday aboard a lorry with Kenyan registration numbers.

Speaking to the press in Garissa town, Yego said the driver and the suspected trafficker were also arrested.

"We want to know the people involved in this illegal business since they are the ones compromising our security," he said.

Yego aid the suspects will be arraigned in court next Monday once investigations are completed.

This is the second time in less than a month that police have arrested Ethiopian immigrants in the county.

Two weeks ago, another 73 illegal immigrants were arrested in Balambala after the lorry they were travelling in was involved in an accident.
