Security officials excavate “boxes” from Abuja’s Amigo supermarket

Amigo and Wonderland still remain under seal.

Security officials who carried out a semi-excavation work on Amigo supermarket in Abuja say they have unearthed ‘boxes’ whose content have not been disclosed.

The boxes have been taken to the head office of the Department of State Security Service, SSS, in Abuja, an official of the agency, involved in the excavation, told PREMIUM TIMES.

Sources told PREMIUM TIMES that the security officials are currently excavating some parts of Amigo, one of Abuja’s busiest supermarkets, and Wonderland Amusement Park, Abuja’s largest amusement park, in search of likely weapons.

The SSS sealed of Amigo and Wonderland on Friday evening after the businesses’ co-owner was declared wanted for allegedly being part of a Hezbollah Lebanese terrorist cell in the country.

Earlier on Thursday, the Joint Task Force in Kano said it uncovered a bunker beneath a house in Kano where heavy ammunition including anti-tank weapons were stored.

The JTF said it arrested three suspects who mentioned the Amigo owner as part of them.
