Nigerian government failed to shut down Radio Biafra | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, has admitted that the Nigerian government failed in its attempt to shut down Radio Biafra.

The radio station which operates from London, United Kingdom was established by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kani.

Mohammed says UK government refused to shut it down, because it (UK) saw the group as exercising its freedom of expression.

However, he added that the government would not rest until IPOB was stopped.

“It is incontrovertible that some people in diaspora contribute money to IPOB, where does he (Nnamdi Kanu) get his money from?

“We know this as a fact. Again there are a few very knotty diplomatic issues which you need to skip, for instance, who does not know that the IPOB internal radio is located in London? We know the diplomatic moves we have been taking and approaching the UK… all the damages it has done…. But they don’t see it that way, for them it’s about freedom of expression,” he said State House correspondents on Wednesday.

“If we have a person in Nigeria openly soliciting arms to come and fight the UK, what would you think of, would you consider that freedom of expression?

“And this is a country that also has had a history, what did IRA do to be labelled a terrorist organisation? They were planting bombs, they were fighting the British army.

“I don’t want any diplomatic row, we know for a fact where the funding is coming from and we are going to stop them, but it is difficult to stop them. We have been working on it and we will not stop,”‎ he said.

  1. We should also look into the possibility of funding by foreign nations.

    E.g. Turkey - ambassador visited KANU, weapons shipped in from Turkey was also discovered at the Lagos port - what's the connection?

    1. Idiot terrorist, is it pump action that a Hausa customs official found claiming to have come from turkey that the igbos will use to fight a war. When your brothers have been freely moving AK47 and other automatic weapons to the north to fight people who simply want out of the slavery and bondage you have systematically placed them.

  2. IPOB members do have fundamental human rights which, unfortunately, the Nigerian government is trying to deny.

    1. Please indicate these rights, which are probably different from the rights of every other citizens or groups in Nigeria

    2. This is your IPOB.
