Security operatives have arrested and detained a man in whose possession grenades and ammunition were found as he attempted to gain entrance into Radio House, venue of a ministerial forum that was to feature Minister of Information, Labaran Maku, Minister of Aviation, Stellah Oduah, and Minister of Youth Development and Sports, Bolaji Abdullahi.
The man, a middle-aged, clean-shaven man, who gave his name as John, was handcuffed and taken away by security operatives. He said he was given the bag containing the arms by a lady, who asked him to deliver it to someone in Abuja. Asked why he brought the bag to Radio House, he said that upon realising that the bag contained explosives, he had to bring it to Radio House to pass a message to the woman so she could come and claim the package.
Radio House, venue of the ministerial forum, houses the Federal Ministry of Information, Federal radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN), Voice of Nigeria and Kapital FM.
