Radio Biafra back on air, agitators say they're unstoppable
The station is said to be live on Tune In, an Internet radio, spreading the same message of “freedom of Biafraland” and hate for Nigeria.
The station is said to be live on Tune In, an Internet radio, spreading the same message of “freedom of Biafraland” and hate for Nigeria, which it described as a Zoo.
The station is airing from “30 Sandlings Close, Pilkington Road, London, SE11 3SY England, United Kingdom.”
According to The Cable, when tuned in, the anchor, who was referred to as the new deputy director of the station, was complaining about the state of power and energy resources in the country.
After receiving a call from Nigeria to complain that the radio was not being aired via FM in some parts of south east Nigeria, the anchor responded by saying the problem would be resolved.
“There is no problem with our general platform, we would look into it tomorrow,” he said.
“We are not forgetting our leader, Kanu. Lord God almighty, grant our leader protection. Continue to set confusion in the midst of our enemies, grant us total freedom.”
The government had jammed station's signals after initial failed attempts, but the station is still broadcasting on the internet.
After it was jammed in 2015, it announced that it had launched another station and promised to launch 50 others.
Both Radio Biafra and Biafra 24 radio were said to be live online as at Friday afternoon, April 1, 2016, but residents of Port Harcourt were said to be having difficulties accessing the station via local transmission.
In a statement released this week, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) said the station is back on shortwave.
“Right now, we are back on shortwave after Nigerian government spent millions of dollars taxpayers money trying to stop Radio Biafra.
“All Biafrans and friends of Biafra can now go to 11600 kHz at 25-meter band to cherish the gospel of truth, Broadcasting time is 8pm London time, 9pm Biafra land time. We are unstoppable because Chukwuka Okike Abiama, Almighty God, is on our side,” the statement said.
Kanu and two other pro-Biafra agitators are facing trial for treasonable felony and terrorism.
