Finnish Parliament today discussed what they tagged as hate speech and incicive comments by a Nigerian-Finland based lawyer and Biafra agitator, Simon Ekpa.
In a live coverage by the local Television Channel, social media videos of Ekpa were pulled up for discussion, which, later, the self-acclaimed freedom fighter was interviewed.
This is coming a few days after the Finnish Ambassador to Nigeria, Leena Pylvanainen, said the Finland government has received intels over misinfornation, disinformation, hate speech and incitive comments made by Simon Ekpa through his online radio broadcast.
The envoy made the revelation at a meeting with Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffrey Onyeama, in Abuja on Tuesday.
Onyema had expressed displeasure over the orders given by Simon Ekpa to his teeming followers who consequently embarked on killings, maiming, burning and other destructive activities in South-East.
It should be recalled that Ekpa-led faction of the Indigenous People’s of Biafra (IPOB) had reportedly declared the period of the elections as sit-at-home in the South-East, adding that elections will not be allowed to hold in the region.
Analysing Ekpa’s video and his utterances on his online radio, the Finland based TV channel sent a journalist down to South-East, Nigeria to obtain first hand information and how Ekpa’s Sit-at-home order has affected lives in the region.
The journalist paid a visit to a family in Enugu, which Ekpa’s Sit-at-home order has negatively impacted, the family narrated how their mother, possibly a trader was killed by Ekpa’s foot soldiers while enforcing the order.
