The early morning raid which was against human trafficking also saw the owner of the bar, Asif Amirali Alibhai, arrested. 

Asif was possessing a Canadian passport during the arrest, however, police could not immediately determine if he was a Canadian citizen.

Police said the raid targeted individuals who have been key factors in international sex trafficking.

Coast region Deputy Police Commandant Joseph Chebii branding the raid successful, said the arrested girls made their way into the country through the Lunga Lunga border but could not tell how they travelled from Nepal.

“We have been following this for the past two weeks. After questioning the 12 girls, police discovered they sneaked into the country through Lunga Lunga border but it is yet to be established how they managed to reach Kenya from Nepal," he said.

Arrested suspects are held at the Nyali Police Station as investigation proceeds.

This is not the first case girls linking to sex syndicate getting arrested in Nyali. 

The first case involved Kenyans girls who were arrested in a sex crime that involved a dog.
