The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has announced the resurgence of Radio Biafra after the Federal Government had blocked the airwaves in 2015 following the arrest of the Director Mr. Nnamdi Kanu.
The pro-Biafra spokesman, Emma Powerful, who made this known in a statement on Wednesday, said that the station operates on short waves and its satellites covers all the Southeast geopolitical zone, Lagos, Akwa Ibom, Rivers, Delta, Bayelsa, Cross River, London.
He also added that its programmes could be reached through apps and phones.
The statement said, “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 also stated that Akwa-Ibom is now on chk 102.1 fm covering Ikot Ekpene, Uruan, Oron, Uyo, insiriatai, ibiono, nundo, abak, idioro, Akwa-Ibom dakka, Yamal-402 DTH Platform: Frequency 11045MHz Pol: Vertical Symbol Rate: 40MSym, DVB-S, QPSK, 2/3 FEC, Service ID: 5.
Meanwhile, the detained leader of the IPOB, Mr. Kanu, has written to the British Government to intervene in his case by asking President Muhammadu Buhari to release him from prison.
Kanu who is facing treason charge alongside two other pro-Biafra agitators, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi, approached the British government through his lawyer, Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor.
Kanu, in a letter dated March 24 and addressed to the British High Commissioner in Abuja, described himself as a victim of travesty of justice and gross human rights violation, insisting that the President Buhari-led administration has violently abused his fundamental human rights through his prolonged detention in prison custody.
