Finnish police has released a popular pro-Biafra separatist agitator, Simon Ekpa, hours after he was arrested and grilled.
Recall that Ekpa has been reportedly arrested by the Finnish government for acts of terrorism on Thursday.
According to HS reports, Ekpa was later released on Thursday evening after the police allegedly arrested him for a suspected crime in Finland.
The Finnish Central Criminal Police confirmed Ekpa’s release.
The police claimed that its operation in Lahti and the subsequent arrest of the pro-Biafra agitator were in connection with the ongoing preliminary investigation.
“The person being questioned today is suspected of a crime. We will return to the title on Friday,” Tommi Reen from the Central Criminal Police told HS during a phone interview.
Ekpa who is a Finnish citizen and resided in the country had on several occasions declared sit-at-home which violent enforcement had led to killings, maiming, and colossal destruction of properties of innocent residents of the region.
