Nokia CEO gets spotted with a security escort home after layoff announcement
After announcing that Nokia would undergo a major restructuring event that would cause the loss of up to 10,000 jobs, there was one person that apparently thought the news might create some sort of stir with the locals – Nokia CEO Stephen Elop.

Even with Finland’s reputation for being a pretty safe place overall; Canadian-born Elop opted to be escorted back to his Helsinki home by two security guards. According to Finnish site, Iltalehti, Elop and his entourage arrived at his home at roughly 8 p.m. Once it was determined that there were no threats presents, Elop exited the vehicle and briskly made his way inside.

With the Windows Phone Developer Summit right around the corner on June 20th, hopefully Nokia will have some good news to announce before Elop boards himself up inside his house.
