How Finland Is Shielding Simon Ekpa – General Musa

The Chief of Defence Staff, General Christopher Musa, says self-proclaimed leader and Prime Minister of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) must be repatriated from Finland where he’s based.

Musa accused the Finnish government of protecting Simon Ekpa, saying the rambunctious separatist must be arrested and prosecuted.

Musa made the accusation during an interview on Channels Television’s special broadcast to mark Nigeria’s 25th Democracy Day in Abuja.

He also condemned the activities of IPOB in the South-East, demanding the arrest and prosecution of Ekpa.

He called on the Nigerian government to take decisive action, including exploring diplomatic options to curb the menace of the factional leader of the IPOB.

“We have repeatedly complained about the issue of Simon Ekpa. He is in Finland and the Finnish Government is giving him all the support and he is doing what he is doing,” he said.

He noted that Ekpa’s seditious and inciting remarks are causing people their lives, adding that the Finnish government and the European could not claim to be proponents of democracy and continue to harbour and shield characters like Ekpa at the detriment of Nigeria.

“The comments he is making, people are being killed and nothing is being done. This is democracy. If the European Union is supporting democracy and this is happening and they are not taking action, then they don’t mean well for Nigeria.

“We have said that in clear terms. We need to diplomatically find means of getting him out of whatever it is that he is doing. He must be arrested, he must be prosecuted.

“Look at it from the other way, assuming he is in Nigeria, he is doing that to the Finnish government, you think the European Union will allow that to happen? They definitely will not.”
