Featuring on a Channels Television special broadcast to mark Nigeria’s 2024 Democracy Day, Musa accused Finland of shielding Simon Ekpa.

The Chief of Defence Staff, General Christopher Musa has reiterated the need to arrest and bring Simon Ekpa, the self-proclaimed Prime Minister of Biafra Republic in Exile to Nigeria to face prosecution for allegedly sponsoring the criminal activities in the Southeast region.

Featuring on a Channels Television special broadcast to mark Nigeria’s 2024 Democracy Day, Musa accused Finland of shielding Simon Ekpa.

He urged the Nigerian government to take decisive action, including exploring diplomatic options to curb the menace of the pro-Biafra agitator.

Musa said, “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.”

“The comments he is making, people are being killed and nothing is being done,” he noted. “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.”
