Simon Ekpa, a self acclaimed Biafran Disciple’ and leader of Autopilot faction of ESN, has been reportedly arrested earlier today by international Police popularly called “Interpol”.
He was arrested at Finland international Airport whilst trying to escape to Isreal.
This latest development is coming few days after thousands of Nigerians signed an online petition calling for Ekpa’s arrest for “terrorism and genocide.”
The petition read: “We call on the Finnish Government, EU, The Nigerian Government to arrest Mr. Simon Ekpa, and investigate all his heinous crimes and terror activities in Eastern Nigeria.
“One Simon Ekpa (also known as Ifeanyi Njoku), a Nigerian living in Finland, and holding Finnish citizenship, has by proxies, successfully established and coordinated an armed rebel group in Eastern Nigeria whom he now wields to destroy lives, property, and businesses in Eastern Nigeria.
“He’s been seen countless times, using his media platforms in Finland to issue orders to his armed goons in Eastern Nigeria to launch deadly attacks on millions of people in the region for flouting his sit-at-home orders.
“Simon is a separatist fighting for state secession but has never been brave enough to come home and lead the war from the front in Nigeria.
“He is rather igniting and fueling terror on his ethnic group who decline his call for secession.
