FG vs Radio Biafra: Signals shutdown; station debunks report.

coatHmm. The drama between the Federal Government and Radio Biafra gets interesting by the day. Earlier today, the Federal government announced that  it had succeeded in jamming the transmission signals of Radio Biafra, which according to them had been operating illegally from an unknown location.

Dr Yemi Folasade-Esan, the Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Information, stated this while speaking with State House correspondents after he had briefed President Muhammadu Buhari on the activities of the ministry.

According to Folasade-Esan:

“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.“

But on the other hand, the Director Nnamdi Kanu took to his social media page to debunk the report.
