Nigerian authorities raided a Hezbollah terror hideout, confiscated a huge amount of weapons and arrested four terrorists intending to attack Israelis and Westerners.

The raid was carried out in home, used as a warehouse, in the northern city of Kano. Nigeria’s security services director Bassey Etang told reporters, “These weapons were brought into this country by a foreign terrorist organization called Hezbollah. Their target is to attack Israeli and Western interests. We’re not going to allow that.”

The arsenal of weapons was hidden in a bunker under a bedroom, and the raid netted 11 60 mm anti-tank weapons, four anti-tank landmines, two rounds of ammunition for a 122 mm artillery gun, 21 rocket-propelled grenades, 17 AK-47 assault rifles with more than 11,000 bullets and dynamite.

The raid and arrests coincided with growing pressure on the European Union to label Hezbollah a terrorist organization, but the initiative is limited to Hezbollah military wing. Any terrorist designation of Hezbollah by the EU would not include its political party and echelon, which gives the orders for attacks.

The three terrorists who were arrested are Lebanese, and all of them have confessed

Like other Muslim countries, Nigeria is threatened by Islamic fundamentalists. The rebel group in the country is called Boko Haram, which means “Western education is a sin.” There is no evidence that Hezbollah and Boko Haram were working together.

State Security Services director Etang said, “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.”
