Despite the detention and ongoing trial of its director, Nnamdi Kanu, Radio Biafra which has been off the air for some time, has resumed streaming live across the Nigerian airwaves .
According to a report by an online medium, TheCable, the station is live on Tune In, an Internet radio airing across the world.
It would be recalled that the Federal Government had tried unsuccessfully to stop the operation of Radio Biafra and had at point claimed to have jammed its signals.
According to the report, “the radio station has hit the airwaves pushing the same message of “freedom of Biafraland” and condemning happenings in Nigeria, which it called a Zoo.
Radio Biafra is allegedly airing from “30 Sandlings Close, Pilkington Road, London, SE11 3SY England, United Kingdom”.
The anchor, referred to as the new deputy director of the station, complained about the state of power and energy resources in the country.
The anchor, who got call that the radio was not being aired via FM in some parts of south east Nigeria, responded assuring that the problem would be resolved.
“There is no problem with our general platform, we would look into it tomorrow. We are not forgetting our leader, Kanu. Lord God almighty, grant our leader protection. Continue to set confusion in the midst of our enemies, grant us total freedom”, he said.
It would be recalled that security agents had arrested the suspected masterminds of Radio Biafra, and charged Kanu to court for treasonable felony.
The signals were also reportedly jammed after initial failed attempts, but the station is still broadcasting on the world wide web, after months off air.
Radio Biafra and Biafra 24 radio were live online as at Friday afternoon, though residents of Port Harcourt, Rivers State, were said they were having problems accessing the station via local transmission.
It would also e recalled that IPOB had released a statement earlier in the week saying: “Right now, we are back on shortwave after Nigerian government spent millions of dollars of taxpayers money trying to stop Radio Biafra.
“All Biafrans and friends of Biafra can now go to 11600 kHz at 25-meter band to cherish the gospel of truth, Broadcasting time is 8pm London time, 9pm Biafra land time. We are unstoppable because Chukwuka Okike Abiama, Almighty God, is on our side.”
