Seconds later, dozens of soldiers were seen running away before the broadcast was cut off, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) reported.
Maduro, who is serving his sixth term as the president of Venezuela, has been facing backlash as the country has been under severe economic crisis for the past five years, which further led to malnutrition, hyperinflation and mass emigration.
While Maduro was speaking about Venezuela's economy, the audio suddenly went. "He is working as usual", Rodriguez said.
He did not provide the names of those detained or describe the charges they are facing.
Maduro said the investigation into the incident started immediately and that some of those involved in the attack had been captured and charged, although he did not specify the charges against them. "No matter who falls".
In a televised address, Maduro said, "This was an assassination attempt, they tried to assassinate me". Maduro accused current Colombian President Santos of being behind the assassination attack with others involved.
Venezuelan officials are yet to comment on the incident.
