General Christopher Musa, the Chief of Defence Staff, recently criticized the Finnish government and the European Union for allegedly protecting Simon Ekpa, a self-proclaimed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). Speaking on Channels TV on June 12, Musa questioned the EU's commitment to democracy in Nigeria, given their lack of response to Nigeria's calls for Ekpa's extradition.

Simon Ekpa, known for his separatist activities and strong rhetoric supporting the independence of Biafra, has been a contentious figure in Nigeria. The Nigerian government has sought his extradition to face prosecution for his involvement in activities considered destabilizing to national security. General Musa's remarks underscore the frustration within Nigerian authorities regarding perceived international inaction.

 In his words;

“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. 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.”
