IPOB Engineer Reveals How Much He Was Paid To Install RadioBiafra Transmitters On MTN Masts

A telecommunication maintenance engineer, David Nwawuisi, has disclosed that he got an initial payment of N150,000 to install a Radio Biafra transmitter on an MTN mast in Ngwo, Enugu State.

The 29-year-old, who was on the payroll of Ericsson, the firm managing mast sites for MTN, stated this in a statement which he made to the Department of State Services on July 27, 2015. Nwawuisi, who disclosed that he was managing 45 MTN sites for Ericsson, said the Radio Biafra transmitter had operated for three months on MTN mast before it was discovered and his subsequent arrest by the DSS on July 15, 2015.

Nwawuisi said he was being paid N73,000 plus per month by Ericsson. He stated that it was the same amount he was being paid when he joined the company as a trainee in 2014.

Nwawuisi who obtained a B.Sc degree in Biochemistry from the Enugu State University of Science and Technology in 2010, narrated how he was contacted by one Chidiebere Onwudiwe, whom the Federal Government said was at large, and one Obioma, to seal the deal for the installation of the transmitter at the mast site.

The Federal Government had charged Nwawuisi along with the founder of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, with treason and other related offenses including management and assisting in the management of an unlawful society (IPOB).
