According to reports, another ‘Radio Biafra’ has gone on air even after signals of the previous station were jammed.
Agents of the Federal Government on Thursday night, July 16, arrested suspected masterminds of Radio Biafra, a broadcasting platform calling for the secession of the South East from Nigeria.
The signals were also reportedly jammed after initial failed attempts, but the station is still broadcasting on the world wide web, making it practically impossible to block its broadcasts.
On Friday, it announced that it had launched another station, promising to launch 50 others. This is according to Daily Independent’s report.
It was reported that another radio station called “Biafra 24 Radio” has hit the airwaves pushing the same message of “freedom of Biafraland”. The radio station said it is running with the motto of “bringing Biafra closer.”
Radio Biafra in its Friday morning broadcast promised to launch 50 other radio stations to push for the “freedom of Biafra”. Both Radio Biafra and Biafra 24 Radio were live online as at Friday morning, while residents of Port Harcourt, Rivers State, were said to be having difficulty accessing the station.
