radio biafra accuses nbc of lying

The news reported on Tuesday that Nigerian Broadcasting Commission has jammed the signals of the “illegal Radio Biafra” seem not to be as it sounded. 

Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Information, Sade Yemi-Esan told reporters at the State House Abuja that Radio Biafra has been stopped from transmitting because it is not licensed by the commission.

“We also gave a report on Radio Biafra. Right now, the signals from the radio have been jammed successfully by the NBC. The commission is also working with security agencies to get those that are behind that radio because it is an illegal radio. It is not licensed by anybody to be on the airwaves in Nigeria.” Dr. Yemi-Esan said 

She claimed that the operators were not authorized to transmit within the Nigerian territory.

But in a swift reaction, the operators of the Radio accused the minister of lying to deceive the public. Through their twitter handle they said the station is still in the air waves.

“NBC lied to their master. Radio Biafra is live in BiafraLand. They cannot even ban our local station, do they even know we also transmit via satellite and online as well.”

“The animal kingdom Nigeria full of lies, we are still broadcasting”


If the NBC lied to Nigerians through the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Information, Nigerians may begin to contend with the situation where even civil servants statements or accounts of their stewardship will always be taken with a pinch of salt.
