Former Radio Biafra anchor person, Simon Ekpa has been arrested in Finland.
Ekpa was taken into custody on Thursday, two days before Nigeria’s general elections.
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.
Reen said the operation was connected to an ongoing preliminary investigation. He did not comment further on the matter.
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.
