Did The Federal Government Shut Down Radio Biafra?
There’s been a measure of confusion about the real status of radio Biafra. Two days ago, The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Information, Dr Yemi Folasade-Esan, said two days ago; “We also gave a report on (Radio Biafra) that because right now the signals from Radio Biafra have been jammed. The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has successfully jammed that.
“The NBC is also working with security operatives to get those that are behind that radio because it is an illegal radio.
It is not licensed by anybody to be on Nigeria’s airwaves.”
However, contrary to reports that the radio station has been jammed, the radio station is still broadcasting. The twitter handle of Radio Biafra, RadioBiafralive tweeted yesterday, “How can you Jam satellite and internet radio? Nigeria jams radio Biafra signals”.
