The Akasha family have sued the state demanding the release of items confiscated by authorities during a raid that led to the arrest of their brothers. Najma Juma Hassan and Fatma Akasha have sued the Director of Public Prosecutions, Inspector General of Police and the Director of Criminal Investigations. The family wants the government to surrender one hand gold chain with coins, seven gold chains and seven gold earring sets, saying the properties are not to be forfeited as proceeds of crime since the two are already serving sentences. The properties were seized after a raid conducted at their Nyali home in 2014. The group also seized several IDs, passports, several pistols, logbooks, ledgers, birth certificates among others.
