According to the VoA report, the station broadcast mainly propaganda materials to counter media reports of victories by troops from Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon and Niger Republic against the Boko Haram militants.

The report said the Cameroonian government is worried by the new development and has commenced investigations towards locating the radio station, which is said to be on the Nigeria-Cameroun border.

This is coming at a time the Nigerian Army on daily basis has continued to claim victories against the sect in the war against insurgency in the North East.
