Nigeria's military government, trying to foil vote-buying at weekend party conventions to pick presidential candidates, said anyone carrying large sums of money at the poll venues would be arrested, Reuter reports from Lagos. State radio yesterday quoted the spokesman for the presidency, Nduka Irabor, as saying that security agents had been ordered to detain people carrying 'an unwholesome or unusually large sum of money'.
