Initially he thought there were phones in the boxes, so took and then opened them.
“Our personnel have received and secured the bullets. Yes, he was questioned and then immediately let go as he did not know where the bullets were from,” he said.

“I don’t know the size of the bullet, but we’re looking for more information,” he said.
