The CIID detectives told private security personnel manning the premises they intended to arrest the journalist who had earlier received shs20m after threatening to expose a woman in a scandal.

The money was reportedly hidden in the journalist’s car which was neatly parked at the publication’s headquarters.

After arresting the journalist, Police ordered him to open his car for checking. The youthful scribe defied the directives, compelling detectives to tow away the car.

“If there is nothing to hide, why don’t you allow us check your car?” a detective asked the journalist as several reporters looked on in shock.

Sources told Chimpreports the suspect spent a night in jail pending investigations. Multiple sources at CIID confirmed the arrest.
