Leader of the Movement for the Actualisation of the
Sovereign State of Biafra, Ralph Uwazuruike

The National Broadcasting Commission on Friday said that
it had neutralised Radio Biafra.

The commission, in a statement in Abuja by its Director-
General, Mr. Emeka Mba, said with the assistance of
security operatives, it had confiscated the equipment of the
radio station.

The statement read, “The commission has worked with
other agencies to remove the transmissions of the illegal
station from the satellite and this has put paid to the
divisive and disruptive transmissions. We are working on
the Internet transmissions.”

The NBC said that it appreciated the concerns expressed by
Nigerians about the seditious activities of the radio station.

The commission reiterated its calls on the public to
disregard the hate messages broadcast by the radio
station. It also said that security operators had arrested
operators of the radio and transferred them to Abuja.

“Some of the suspects involved in the illicit broadcasts have
also been arrested and taken to Abuja for questioning and
prosecution,” it said.
