The Nigeria Army has accused the government of Finland of shielding one of the top leaders of the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Simon Ekpa.
Appearing before the House of Representatives today, November 21, to brief the members on the security situation in the country,
the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Christopher Musa, insisted that Nigerian government should engage the government of Finland and possibly invite its ambassador to Nigeria for briefing.
The Defence Chief who led other Service Chiefs and the Inspector General of Police to the meeting with the House of Representatives at the commencement of its sectoral debate, said that while the military and other security agencies in the country are doing their very best to ensure that there is peace in the South East, the comments and activities of Simon Ekpa have been sabotaging such efforts.
He said that about 140,000 terrorists have so far surrendered and are awaiting disarmament.
He said that there currently no single Nigerian territory under the control of Boko Haram insurgents.
