University of Nairobi Biochemistry student, Hassanein Ahmed Basty, have been arrested by Police in Kenya as he prepared to leave Kenya for Libya.  Basty who had been on the police radar was arrested Thursday as he left for Jomo Kenyatta International Airport while headed for Sudan where he would connect to Libya.


According to the reports by the police, Hassanein was lured by an online recruiter in 2015, who promised him a job as a phlebotomist with a starting salary of Sh200,000 which would eventually increase to Sh1 million. He was notified in October 2015 that his application had been successful and thereby decided to take up the job offer.Basty used part of his University fees given by his parent to buy his ticket to Sudan, which is one of the transit routes to the war-torn country of Libya but was arrested before he accomplished his mission.
