The 39-year-old Uzbek man is suspected of having driven a truck into a department store in the city on Friday. In December 2016, he was informed by the Migration Agency that he had four weeks to leave the country.
The suspect in the truck attack that killed four people in Stockholm, Sweden's capital, was sympathetic to extremist groups, including the Islamic State, police said Sunday.
This past February, the still unnamed man continued to evade authorities tasked that month in carrying out the order.
Although the motive is not yet known, the method resembled previous terror attacks using vehicles in Nice, Berlin and London, all of them claimed by the Islamic State (IS) group.
As of Sunday, 10 of the 15 people wounded in the truck attack in the Swedish capital remained hospitalized, including one child.
The victims included two Swedes, one Briton and a Belgian national who were killed when a rejected asylum seeker drove a truck through a crowd, Stockholm police official Jan Evensson told reporters.
The upscale department store that was rammed Friday by the truck apologized for an announcement that it would reopen two days after the deadly attack to sell damaged goods at a "reduced price".
About a hundred police officers have been deployed to Stockholm after the attack.
Swedish prosecutors on Sunday announced the arrest of a second person for a suspected connection to the case, but released no further information.
Akilov was detained at around on Friday night in a northern Stockholm suburb hours after police say he hijacked a truck and ploughed through a pedestrian shopping street in central Stockholm, killing four and injuring 15. It is also a stark reminder of how hard it is for authorities to stop these types of attacks that are becoming increasingly common across the continet.
Floral tributes are left at the scene of the terrorist attack where a truck crashed after driving down a pedestrian street in downtown Stockholm on April 8, 2017 in Stockholm, Sweden.

"I want to show I'm not afraid to go out", Eva Udd, a 55-year-old nurse who had joined the demonstration with a friend, said.
Pierre Svensson, who said he employed the suspect through a contractor for several weeks on an asbestos removal project in Stockholm late previous year, described him as a "reserved person". It was quickly put out.
Minister Didier Reyders says "we have unfortunately have a lost a compatriot in the Stockholm attack".
Sweden's SAPO security police said Sunday it was working to find "any abettor or network involved in the attack".
National Coordinator Against Violent Extremism Anna Carlstedt, who used to lead the Red Cross in Sweden, said Friday's attack and the background of the suspect posed "difficult questions".
