We have identified and put together a number of facts, which made it through the initial reporting by Swedish national media, with regards to the terror attack against a department store in central Stockholm on April 7, 2017.
The hijacking of the truck was allegedly done by an Uzbeki national given the name Rakhmat Akilov by the Swedish police.
The act was not a spur of the moment thing. It happened on someone’s order, after considerable planning.
Who would benefit from crashing a truck into the cosmetics department of a Swedish department store?
Some of the pieces of the puzzle:
- The only way an outsider could have “hijacked” the truck in question was if the vehicle was left with the engine on and the door open or at least unlocked.
- There was a bomb onboard the truck.
- The bomb did not go off but somehow the hijacker Akilov managed to burn himself on it.
- During the last two years, Europe has seen at least seven terrorist attacks. The attack in Stockholm in 2017 is the only one in which the perpetrators survived.
- Apparently, some sort of relationship exists between Sweden’s state security police, SÄPO, and Akilov.
- Gunfire was heard during the pursuit of Akilov, immediately after the attack.
- The days just before the day of the attack, Swedish police and military ran an exercise on the scenario of a terrorist attack in central Stockholm.
- Readers aware of numerology realize that the date of the attack, 07-04-2017, carries symbolic importance to freemasons: the date adds up to 777 (7, 4+2+1, 7). It deserves mentioning that bombing in London twelve years ago also carries the same numerological symbolism: 07-07-2005 (2+5, 7, 7).
Is this what really happened?
The alleged perpetrator Akilov is transported to the location in central Stockholm, where a truck belonging to a brewery is standing with its engine on and the door to the driver’s cabin open (reg plate PNG 037).
Akilov takes possession of the vehicle and performs seven 90-degree turns that eventually places the truck on Drottninggatan, going southward.
Akilov starts the mad dash toward the intended target.
He spots a bomb in the cabin next to him. He realizes the plan might very well be that he will be among the casualties at the truck’s intended final destination. He attempts to disarm the bomb. He succeedes – but burns his hand in the process. He looses control of the vehicle, which crashes into the department store.
Akilov exists the vehicle and leaves the scene.
He finds his way the Central station where he gets on a train to Arlanda airport north of Stockholm. By doing this, he manages to escape the dragnet of heavily armed national SWAT-teams of police officers that rapidly has descended on the scene.
At Arlanda, Akilov changes transport, and ends up in the Municipality of Märsta, where he is arrested by ordinary police.

The terrorist attack of the decade derailed?
What had happened, had Akilov not discovered the bomb in the truck and disarmed it (and in the process crashed the truck into the department store)?
The trajectory the truck was on, southwards on Drottninggatan, would in a matter of one or two minutes have taken it into the government and parliament headquarters (map below).
One can only speculate in what kind of explosives might have been planted at the government square during the terrorist “exercise” the day before, for the purpose of reinforcing the symbolic impact of the bomb in the truck?
