Pro-Biafran separatist agitator Simon Ekpa has been reportedly arrested by Finnish authorities.
According to a Finland news outlet HS, the police escorted the separatist out of his apartment in Lahti on Thursday.
Ekpa was taken into custody on Thursday 48 hours to the start of the general elections in Nigeria.
Criminal Investigator, Tommi Reen from the Central Criminal Police told the HS news outlet that the Keskusrikospoliisi (KRP), the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in Finland had a police operation in a private apartment in the centre of Lahti.
The platform claimed that they had gone to Ekpa’s residence for an interview but the Finland police, KRP, surprisingly answered when the HS team rang the separatist bell.
Nigeria had asked Finland to intervene in Ekpa’s activities. Last week, the Minister of Foreign Affairs Godfrey Onyeama invited the Finnish ambassador Leena Pylvänäinen to a meeting.
