UK indicts Nigeria over Radio Biafra according to Vanguard Newspaper
The United Kingdom has blamed Nigeria for the continued operation of pirate Radio Biafra which the Indigenous People of Biafra (POB)uses to preach hate against the country. The radio station domiciled in the UK was established by the Movement for the Actualisation of the Soverign State of Biafra (MASSOB) with Mr. Nnamdi Kanu as Director.
Kanu, also a British citizen, operated the radio on behalf of MASSOB and later took over the radio as a megaphone of IPOB. The British government seems not happy with reports credited to Nigerian information and culture minister Lai Mohammed, who insinuated that the UK had not shut the radio station.
A terse statement released on Thursday by Mr. Joe Abuku, Press and Public Affairs Officer, British High Commission in Nigeria, said the “The UK is not aware of any representation from Nigerian government about Radio Biafra.’’ “Were we to receive any such request, we would, of course, consider it carefully on the basis of the available evidence, recognising that freedom of speech and expression carries responsibilities.’’
The minister recently accused some people in France and United Kingdom of having links with the proscribed IPOB. According to reports, Mohammed was quoted that that “the financial headquarters” of the separatist group “is in France”. He said this is a “fact”, while faulting the UK for not doing something to stop Biafra radio from airing over there.
As the Minister pointed out, the Biafra Radio was probably not taken down by the UK authorities being that the radio is a free channel of communication available to any law-abiding person. Very much like the internet and social media, anyone who has the license to operate a radio can always air whatever they want to.
United Kingdom has fired back at Nigeria by saying Nigeria government has never written any official letter to them concerning radio Biafra London. Remember that liar Muhammad A.k.A lying machine allaged during his interview on NTA and Channel TV respectively accused Britain of playing double standard by allowing operation of radio Biafra in UK, when asked by the moderator if they have written to government of UK over the issue he said that Nigeria government under Buhari had in several occasions written and meet with UK government concerning the matter to revoke the licence of Radio Biafra but they keep telling them that they have freedom of speech as such can't stop their operation. My question now among this two corrupt entity whose story did you believe,?
