The Nigeria Police Force, has stated that its investigation showed that Boko Haram, Ansaru, and other terror groups, are getting support from some Nigerians.
A major operation by the Islamist group, Hezbollah, was foiled in Lagos, with the arrest of Ali Mohammed El Hassan, in Ikoyi, on Friday night.
Details of this operation have not been revealed, because of the highly sensitive nature of the plot.
However, it was gathered from a source, that Hezbollah, under the leadership of Mr. El Hassan, had planned a major attack on Ikoyi and the Lekki areas of Lagos.
Nigerian Security Agencies acted on a tip from International Intelligence, and apprehended the suspect at an undisclosed location in Ikoyi.
Hezbollah is a Shia Military and Political group, based in Lebanon. Hezbollah became an established Militant group, during the Israeli Occupation of Southern Lebanon, in 1982.
In its 1985 manifesto, Hezbollah professed that its goals were to destroy Israel, and expel Western influences from Lebanon and the wider Middle East. In 1992, Hezbollah transitioned from acting solely as a Militant group fighting against Israel, to an established political party in Lebanon.
Today, Hezbollah’s political and Military wings are both active within the country, and take part in elections. Hezbollah also has a close relationship with both the Assad and Iranian regimes.
