Kenyan police have seized 20 million dollars of counterfeit banknotes that had been stored in a personal safety deposit box at a branch of Barclays Bank Kenya.

The directorate of criminal investigations said the police had also arrested six people, including two of the bank’s staff.

The customer had concealed fake currency in his personal safe deposit box against the bank’s rules and regulations which include restrictions of items which can be held in the safe deposit box.

A witness saw a crowd gathered outside the branch on Tuesday, shouting angrily and demanding officers reveal their identities.
