According to various reports, the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has opted to neutralise signals of Radio Biafra, as the station continues to broadcast even after the commission claimed it had successfully jammed the renegade stations’ signals.

The director-general of the corporation also assured that those behind the operation of the illegal station would be arrested and face prosecution.
Director-general of the commission, Emeka Mba, speaking at the first annual lecture organised by the commission in Abuja, in commemoration of its 23rd anniversary with the theme: “New Media Convergence and the Future of Broadcasting: Greedy Telcos, Naive Broadcasters and the Scramble for Spectrum,” denied that the commission gave the station a license to operate.
“We didn’t give them a licence. What we are doing is to continue our own investigations. We will do what we call neutralising the signals which is currently ongoing,” he said.
Furthermore, the director-general also assured that those behind the operation of the illegal station would be arrested and face prosecution.
“My understanding is that they have resumed. But I don’t want to speak about this because it gives them more and more publicity. All I can tell you is that government may act slow, but all the people involved will all be arrested and prosecuted,” he said.
