A mild drama occurred on Saturday afternoon in the heart of Reggio Calabria, a town in Italy after a Nigerian immigrant decided to create a public scene.
The man was allegedly seen damaging an entrance door to the offices of the city’s cathedral.
According to reports, police officers in San Francesco da Paola, a few meters from the main entrance of the building, chased him before he reached a square and climbed a building through some service pipelines.
Armed with a knife, he threatened to cut the wires as he asked the police and officials who surrounded him to get away so he can escape. But eventually, the knife slipped from his hand and he was left unarmed as can be seen in the trending video posted online.
Meanwhile, the square was filled with onlookers who witnessed the scene.
The man later came down after the police set up a ladder for him before he was taken to the station.
