The federal government on Tuesday hinted that it had successfully shut the signals from Radio Biafra because it had not been 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, at the moment, the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) and security forces in the country were hunting those behind the radio to arrest them.
Her words: “We also gave a report on that. Right now the signals from radio biafra has 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”.
