Splinter group opens own radio station

19 March 2014, 20:14Henry Ifeanyi

Lagos - The secessionist Movement for the Actualization of Biafra (MASSOB) has announced the launch of its satellite radio station to project its agenda.

MASSOB is a splinter eastern region group that has been clamouring for a separate country for the Igbo people of the country.

A statement signed by the group interim spokesperson, Ikechukwu Enyiagu, said the station is known as Radio Biafra, and could be received via satellite.

Enyiagu said Radio Biafra was designed to reach people of the defunct Biafra Republic and to compel Nigeria to allow Biafrans secede through a referendum.

Enyiagu said that despite efforts by government agencies to frustrate their efforts, the group has continued to grow.

He noted that Radio Biafra was originally launched in London in 2013, and has been on air in Europe, Australia, United States and some parts of Asia.

“Radio Biafra decided to come home to Biafran soil, now that the time is right”, Enyiagu said.

He warned that those killing Biafrans outside Biafra territory would be dealt with when Biafra finally regained nationhood.

Ralph Uwazurike, who has been previously arrested and imprisoned by the federal government over allegations of treason, leads the group.
