Panic has gutted Parliament after a man reportedly attempted to deliver a human head to the Office of the Speaker. 

It is said that the alleged human head was wrapped in form of a gift that was meant to be delivered to the Speaker Rebecca Kadaga's office. Police has identified the suspect as Joseph Nuwashaba,22, a resident of Kizinda Bushenyi – Ishaka municipality in Bushenyi district.

According to security sources, the "gift" was intercepted by security at the parliament Northern gate, opposite National Theater.
By press time, information to this incident was still scanty as security officials decline to speak to the media.

Speaker Kadaga sits on the 6th floor of the Northern wing of the Parliamentary building. 

The parliament spokesperson Hellen Kaweesa says she is waiting for an official report from police.
