Hizbullah Foreign Terrorist Cell in Nigeria
With the discovery of a bunker housing a cache of ammunitions, best described as “weapons of mass destruction” by Nigerian security officials, an arrest of a suspect with $60,000 at the airport and the alleged direct involvement of a certain owner of one of Abuja`s premier recreation centres and co-owner of a popular supermarket, what more drama can we ask for in our search for peace?
Do Nigerians understand the enormity of this challenge of terrorism? Isnt there a need for social re-engineering in terms of patriotism and defence of nationhood? Perhaps it is close to time to re-organise the NYSC program, inject more funding and give it a befitting place in youth development through para-military training, on a more serious note.
Must we wait before we are engulfed by foreigners who masquerade as Nigerians? Some people can already hear the drum beat of nationalistic fervor awakening the consciousness of the people. The violence we have witnessed in the past years is quite alien to us and with this recent development it is obvious that there is a huge foreign direct involvement in attempts to destabilise Nigeria, and dare I say utterances from the opposition parties too have not shown maturity in dealing with this issue.
