FG directs NBC to shut down Biafran radio

THE Federal Government has directed the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to work in close collaboration with the security agencies towards shutting down the Biafran Radio operating in the south eastern part of the country.

In the interim, the commission had jammed the operations of the station, which it described as illegal, saying it had not been licenced by any government regulatory body.

Speaking to State House correspondents after briefing President Muhammadu Buhari on the activities of her ministry, Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Information, Dr. Shade Yemi-Esan admitted “I have got a report on that. Right now signals from Radio Biafra has been jammed successfully by the NBC.

The commission, she said 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.”
