June 5, 2013

Security operatives in Kano have unearthed another Hezbollah-linked cache of arms and ammunition in the same location as last week’s find.
Military spokesman Captain Ikedichi Iweha said the new cache involves a bunker beneath the master bedroom.  Three Lebanese nationals have been arrested.
The new discovery was made yesterday at the 3 Gaya Road, Bompai address where, last week, a large quantity of arms and ammunition was found in a warehouse, and four foreigners were arrested.  
SaharaReporters was told that the owner of the warehouse, a Lebanese national, was being interrogated following the discovery.  Today, however, it was understood that the property belongs to one Abdul Hassan Taher Fadlalla, a Lebanese national, but that he is currently out of the country.
In a statement made available to reporters, Iweha of the Third Brigade of the Nigerian Army said that further search of the bungalow led to the astonishing discovery of dangerous weapons buried under a wardrobe.
“After painstaking search of the whole premises, the search team uncovered an underground bunker in the master bed room where a large quantity of assorted weapons of different types and caliber and ammunition which were properly wrapped was recovered.
“On further search of the property, a cooler was recovered buried under the wardrobe which had in it, 80 indicators, 5 PPK pistols, 334 rds of 7.62mm special, 9 magazines, 4 pistol silencers, 18 36 hand grenades caps, 4 explosive fuses and 2 explosive devices.”
He recalled that on 28 May 2013, a combined team of the DSS and 3 Brigade Nigerian Army conducted a thorough search of a house at No 3 Gaya Road off Bompai Road Kano.
