Simon Ekpa, the self-proclaimed disciple of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has been given 48 hours by the Finnish government to end the sit-at-home order in the southeast.
The directive is contained in a statement sent to Ekpa and signed by Prime Minister, Sanna Mirella Marin, and dated February 15, 2023.
The warning says that Ekpa will be arrested and charged with international terrorism if he fails to heed the instruction.
"Following complaints by Nigerians in Finland and the Nigerian Government about your various pronouncements, using social media outlets, to impose sit-at-homes in Nigeria, you are hereby warned to desist from such nefarious activities which are capable of disturbing the peace and causing bloodshed.
"More worrying to the Finnish Government is your imposition of sit-at-homes on days slated for democratic elections in Nigeria. This is an act of international terrorism.
"You are hereby directed to call off your planned sit-at-homes by pronouncing through the same media outlets, you used for your illegal pronouncements, a reversal of your sit-at-home orders.
"Mr Simon Ikpa, you have 48 hours to reverse course or you will be arrested and charged with international terrorism.”
"I have directed my Attorney General, Raija Toiviainen, to ensure that my directive is immediately carried out," the statement reads.
