The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has dared the Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari that they would launch Radio Biafra in his home town Daura, kastina state.
The group made this known in a statement by its media publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful on Wednesday, 7 October.
This is coming less than 42hrs after the Federal Government approved N653.8m for the procurement special frequency monitoring system which they said would be used to monitor illegal radio signals in the country, particularly the Southeast region.
The freedom fighting organization, IPOB, in turn interpreted this move by the federal government as a planned deal to jam the frequency of Radio Biafra.
In a statement, Emma Powerful, lambasted the federal government for mapping a huge amount of money on a project that is dead on arrival.
According to him, the federal government should not worry about a particular set of people they’ve earlier termed “Miscreants”.
The statement reads:
“The attention of the global movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been drawn to the approval of N654m by the Federal Government of Nigeria to monitor and crash Radio Biafra frequencies in the country particularly in South East and South South geopolitical zones.
“That the Federal Government of Nigeria mapped out such a whopping amount of money for this unreasonable project despite its precarious economic state only confirms its jittery over the name IPOB. We thought they said we are miscreants? How come they are now losing sleep over miscreants?
“The Nigerian Government and its agents have spent more than this amount in the past and nothing came out of it. We are expecting them to approve more money for the fight because they must understand that they will try but cannot withstand IPOB and its Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Such attempts in the past amounted to efforts in futility, and this time, they will fail again.
“In fact to prove to them how formidable we are, within six weeks from now, IPOB will launch Radio Biafra in Daura, the home town of Buhari who presided over the FEC that took this foolish decision. Then he will know that the cabal, their sponsors and slaves are no match to indefatigable IPOB.
“In case they are unaware, Radio Biafra is not only received in Biafra land but in various parts of Nigeria. It is also the choice radio station of millions of audience in over 100 countries of the world.
“We are well ahead of Nigeria, and it’s far too late to stop Biafra. We are a divine movement ordained by the Most High God in Heaven.”
