Security operatives attached to the National Press Centre, venue of the ongoing Ministerial Platform, on Monday, arrested a man with ammunition.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the arrest caused panic in and around the centre even as the Chief Security Officer at Radio House, Mr James Akindele, told reporters that the suspect was arrested at the main entrance.
Akindele said: ``This afternoon, our operatives arrested a man with rounds of 7.7 mm live ammunition and three 86 hand grenades, all concealed in a polythene bag and put in a black bag.
``We have not interrogated him, we just apprehended him. What we want to do now is to hand him over to the police for further investigation and then you will all get to know more about his case.”
The suspect was later taken to the police station while proceedings at the ministerial platform continued. (NAN)
