Brazil will reevaluate the procedures for President elect Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva’s inauguration after an explosive near capital Brasilia’s international airport was disarmed Saturday.

A man who confessed he intended to commit a crime in Brasilia’s airport was arrested on Saturday night, according to the civil police force.

The man was allegedly a supporter of current President Jair Bolsonaro, who lost a narrow election against Lula, local news outlet G1 said.

CNN reports:

Police seized an explosive device found by a truck drive in a tanker truck close to Brasilia International Airport. Upon further investigation, police also found a rifle, two shotguns, revolvers, more than 1,000 pieces of ammunition, and other 5 explosive devices in the suspect’s rented apartment in Brasilia, police said.

“This is something that has never existed in Brasilia and we will not allow such demonstrations that may harm people and public property,” the police chief said during the briefing. The suspect identified others involved in the plot and more arrests will be carried out, police said.
