JTF uncovers Lebanese terror cell in Kano

Culled from Punch
The Joint Task Force on Thursday said it had uncovered a Lebanon-based Hezbollah armoury and terror cell in Bompai, Kano State.
The force, which said it found large cache of arms and ammunition, also confirmed the arrest of three persons in connection with the armoury and the cell.
A Lebanese national currently out of the country reportedly owns the premises where the armoury and the cell were found at No 3, Gaya Road, Off Bompai Road in the ancient city.
A statement by the JTF spokesman, Captain Ikedichi Iweha, said the JTF operatives, comprising officials of the 3rd Army Brigade in Kano and the State Security Service conducted the operations.
The operatives, he said, uncovered an underground bunker in the premises where large quantities of assorted weapons were hidden.

Iweha, who said the construction of the bunker was special, listed anti-tank weapons, rocket propelled guns and anti-tank/personnel mines as some of the dangerous weapons found in the premises.

He added that the weapons and ammunition were concealed in coolers, drums and bags.
According to him, the latest recovery followed an ongoing robust counter-terrorism investigation by the SSS.

Confirming the existence of a Hezbollah cell in the country, Iweha noted that the SSS had arrested one Mustapha Fawaz, co-owner of Amigo Supermarket and the Wonderland Amusement Park, in Abuja.

The arrest of Fawaz, Iweha said, led to the arrest of another Lebanese terror suspect, Abdullah Tahini, at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport with over$60,000

He added, “Thereafter on May 26, 2013, one Talal Roda, also a Lebanese with a Nigerian Passport, was arrested in the same house.

“All those arrested have confessed to have undergone Hezbollah Terrorist Training and further implicated one Fauzi Fawad, also a co-owner of Amigo Supermarket and Wonderland Amusement Park.”

When one of our correspondents contacted the Director of Defence Information, Brig. Gen. Chris Olukolade, he described the discovery of the arms and the arrest of the Lebanese importers as “a major breakthrough.”

The action of the JTF operatives, he said demonstrated the commitment of security agencies to riding the country of illegal arms.

Meanwhile, the SSS said the weapons  were intended for use against “Israeli and Western interests”.
“This is the handwork of Hezbollah,” Bassey Ettang, director of the SSS said in Kano.
“You can also be sure that if a group like this is existing, then it may even lend support to some of the local terrorists we have on the ground.”

Hezbollah is a Shia military and political movement based in Lebanon considered by the United States to be a terrorist organisation.

  The sect was conceived by Muslim clerics and funded by Iran following the Israeli invasion of Lebanon, and was primarily formed to offer resistance to the Israeli occupation.

Its leaders were inspired by former Iranian leader, Ayatollah Khomeini, and its forces were trained and organised by a contingent of Iranian Revolutionary Guards.

Hezbollah’s 1985 manifesto listed its four main goals as “Israel’s final departure from Lebanon as a prelude to its final obliteration.”

What are they trying to say? Do they think Nigeria is a place or home for a preparation of counter-attack and sewage of enough space to safe guard arms with the highest dangerous mechanism?

And for securities operatives, I am not happy with them. It is not time to celebrate achievement; they have not achieve anything. Where were they when they were bringing these arms?

Great job by our security personnel, but at the same time may God help us in this country. How on earth can such massive weapons enter the country without being detected at the point of entry?

Hmmmmm! Major brktru indeed. What crossed my mind is dat security is not rocket science! Don't people live on that street? R der no neighbours? For such a hide out to be in a built up area in ever bustling Bompai suggest dat no one is paying attention to ensure safety even for him/her self. These terrorist live close to us dan eva imagined. Kudos to JTF! Pls watch your bac o!

hiss! nor be their fault nah. When a harworking nigerian man goes to d ministry to collect license to build a supermarket dey go post the man for yearsss, meanwhile if lebanese man talk toh minister for one minute, dey go give am license for the whole street.
They pay the nigerian staff peanuts but those ones are happy working for them bcos they are 'oyinbo', hiss (slave mentality).
Ehn! so why wont they want to use force to take over naija completely?!..Like the old saying goes, "if u give them an inch......."

Pls anyone with link to SSS shld tell them to investigate this it might be a lead.
