We're not involved in Hezbollah armoury saga - Lebanese community

The Lebanese community in Kano has exonerated itself from the large consignment of arms  uncovered by the Nigerian security agents in the troubled northern Nigerian commercial city that was linked to international terrorist organization, Hezbollah.

Addressing newsmen in Kano in its first official reaction since the Hezbollah cell in the city was busted by the security agents, Chairman of the community, Tahir Fadlallah said that the Lebanese Community ‘’unequivocally condemns crime in whatever form”.


Tahir Fadlallah,  who also doubled as the chairman of the Tahir Guest palace in Kano said that, “with almost 100 years of our stay in Kano, we have never been associated with any crime that threatened the peace of our host”.

Tahir Fadlallah said that, ‘’the community is ready and willing to cooperate with security and law enforcement agencies in their efforts to counter any act or activities associated or related to terrorists act”.

Fadlallah maintained that,” Lebanese community will not accept or associate with any criminal individual or group”.

The chairman further disclosed that the Lebanese community will give their full and unwavering confidence in the ability of the relevant authorities to carry out thorough investigations with a view to bring the culprits to justice.

Tahir also condemned in strong terms, the purported newspaper report that linked him and his organization to Hezbollah armoury, stressing that, “I am not involved and I’m prepared to initiate a legal action for redress. I have been receiving calls within and outside the country over the purported story but it’s not true at all as you all can see now.  I’m addressing you and will not leave the damage to go like this because I will sue them”.

    And you think I believe you? If this was in Lebanon, I bet you next week there will be a lot of deported Nigerians heading down here. But it is Nigeria where anything goes, so we keep our hands folded and our mouth shut. Do they even have visas? 100 years?!!! And they give us grieve for wanting to stay a few weeks!!

    Gbam,true talk. Why cnt we tighten our immigration laws...dts if we have any,secure our porous borders? Wats r d customs n immigration officers doing? We shud wake up n know dt terrorism is alive n Living nigeria. Anyone who told us we would b dealing with ds mess 10yrs ago,we wudnt believe dem,by look at us nw. Prayer cnt solve ds,our govt need 2 wake up n start working. Send d security operatives 2 refresher courses on security intelligence,then cnt fight terrorism wtout being versed in modern day security.
