FG Jams Radio Biafra Signal



The federal government hinted yesterday that it had successfully shut the signals from Radio Biafra because it is not licensed to operate in Nigeria.

The permanent secretary, Ministry of Information, Dr. Sade Yemi-Esan, gave the hint after briefing President Muhammadu Buhari on the state of affairs in the ministry at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Yemi-Esan said that at the moment, the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) and security forces in the country were hunting those behind the radio to arrest them.

She said: “We also gave a report on that. Right now, the signals from Radio Biafra had 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 airwave in Nigeria”.

She said President Buhari urged the ministry to step up its publicity level to enable Nigerians know what the current administration is doing in terms of governance.

Yemi-Esan added that Buhari urged them to reduce the rate of piracy in the country to enable Nollywood stakeholders get their dues.
