Biafra: Simon Ekpa must be arrested – Chief of Defence Staff

The Chief of Defence Staff, Christopher Musa, has said that self-acclaimed Biafra Prime Minister, Simon Ekpa, must be arrested and prosecuted for encouraging the activities of gunmen in the Southeast.

Musa also lamented that Ekpa was using the protection he enjoyed from the Finnish government to perpetrate evil in Nigeria.

He made these remarks during a Channels Television special broadcast to mark Nigeria’s 2024 Democracy Day.

Ekpa is based in Finland and has continued to issue sit-at-home orders in the name of IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu.

However, the Service Chief urged the federal government to explore diplomatic options in tackling Ekpa.

According to Musa: “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 result in people 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 stopping him from whatever it is that he is doing. He must be arrested, and he must be prosecuted.

“Look at it from another perspective: assuming he is in Nigeria and doing that to the Finnish government, do you think the European Union would allow that to happen? They definitely would not.”
