The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) in Abuja is insisting that it has effectively neutralised the Biafran radio station.
A statement signed by the Director General of the NBC, Emeka Mba said the commission “has effectively neutralised illegal broadcasts from the seditious pirate station that has recently shattered the peace in parts of the South-East of Nigeria with unsavoury hate messages.
The commission said that it worked with security operatives to track down, neutralise and confiscate transmitter equipment from several locations in the region.
The statement said: “The commission has also worked with other agencies to remove the transmissions of illegal station from the satellite, and this has put paid to the divisive and disruptive transmissions. We are working on the Internet transmissions.”
The commission said it appreciated the concerns expressed by Nigerians over the seditious activities of the illegal ‘Biafra Radio’ transmitting hate messages, “that are unfortunately designed to create dis unity among Nigerians and mislead young people in a deliberate act of subversion.
The commission called on the public to disregard the hate messages coming from the misguided station.
