Nigerian security forces have uncovered and arrested a Hizbullah terror cell in recent days. The cell had maintained a large weapons store in a bunker.

The cell has been operating for several years and had planned to strike American and Israeli targets.

Nigeria is one of the countries that Shiite terrorist groups and global jihad groups have an interest in, as they intensify their efforts in Africa as part of a global terror campaign.

The cell that was arrested is part of the Shiite terror campaign against Israeli and western targets which is ongoing, security sources said.

It is possible that the cell was also involved in Hizbullah operations in African countries such as Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Benin and Ghana.
