A self-acclaimed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Simon Ekpa has been reportedly arrested by the Finnish government for acts of terrorism on Thursday.
According to a Finland news outlet HS, the police escorted the separatist out of his apartment in Lahti.
The platform claimed that they had gone to Ekpa’s residence for an interview but to their surprise, the Finland police, KRP, answered when the HS team rang the separatist bell.
Recall that Nigerians have asked the federal government to deal with Simon Ekpa after releasing statement that the upcoming elections would not hold in the South-East region.
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.
Worried by the threat, Ohanaeze Ndigbo held an executive committee meeting and condemned the threat by Simon Ekpa to lock down Igbo land.
Ohanaeze “expressed both shock and doubt that a true Igbo will unconscionably embark on a disingenuous duplicitous adventure aimed at denigrating, disenfranchising and decimating his people,” during the general election.
Ohanaeze noted that IPoB has disowned any sit-at-home in the South-East during the election period and wondered who Ekpa is working for.
