The Nigeria Police Force says its investigation shows 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 overnight, TVC News reports.

Details of this operation have not been revealed because of the highly sensitive nature of the plot – newsmen 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.
