“We have repeatedly complained about the issue of Simon Ekpa. He is in Finland. The Finnish government are 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. And this is democracy. If the European Union (EU) is the one supporting democracy and this is happening and they are not taking action, then they don’t mean well for Nigeria."

Musa added:

“We have said that in clear terms. We need to diplomatically find means of getting him out with whatever it is that he is doing. He must be arrested; he must be prosecuted.”

The CDS continued:

“Look at it the other way. Assuming he is in Nigeria and he is doing that to the Finnish government, you think the European Union would allow that to happen? They definitely would not. So, why are they allowing him to do what he is doing and people like him that are doing such things.”
