[ Masterweb Reports ] - Radio Biafra has launched a satellite television dubbed Biafra Television and a shortwave (SW) radio that will cover most Africa and beyond. According to the clandestine station, the frequency of the broadcast is 15560 kHz in the 19 meter band and hours of broadcast for the time being, 7.00 – 9.00 am and 7.00 – 9.00 pm Nigerian time. The station still broadcasts on FM, satellite and Internet, even though Nigeria National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) claim they have blocked them on FM and satellite, and would also do the same on Internet. Briefing Journalists last month after a meeting between officials of Ministry of Information and President Buhari, Dr. Shade Yemi-Esan, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Information said: “Right now the signals from radio Biafra have been jammed successfully by 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.”
Nnamdi Kanu, Radio Biafra Director in a statement posted on their website, described their shortwave radio as “Nuclear War Head”. It is unbelievable that Radio Biafra that is supposed to have had its wings clipped by NBC is now not only broadcasting in the South East and Niger Delta but now sending its air waves across Nigeria and Africa. Has NBC lost the air wave war with Radio Biafra? The answer will be known with what happens in the next few days.
