Separatist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has dismissed claims that the Nigerian government may have taken over the Radio Biafra; saying the Federal Government of Nigeria has proven over and again that it is incompetent to handle such technical challenge.

IPOB also said that any person or agency of the Nigerian government thinking of stopping Biafran radio is only hallucinating as it is beyond the reach of the government.

A statement issued by the spokesman of the organisation, Comrade Emma Powerful read in part: “It is on record that the Nigerian government and her agency Nigeria Broadcasting Corporation tried all they could to stop Radio Biafra from broadcasting from London but failed. They went as far as putting pressure on the British government to close our studios in London, which they failed too. They purchased Satlink an Israeli company that provided us satellite services.

"They did this through a company in the United States. As soon as the company assumed control of Satlink, they terminated our contract. We moved to another supplier and have been with this supplier for five years now.” The statement continued: “One important thing to understand is this, the Federal Government of Nigeria never successfully shut down any Radio Biafra frequency since inception.

"That is a fact. They repeatedly tried and repeatedly failed because the Almighty is in control of IPOB and its activities. “Simply, our contract expired with our service providers and we stopped the service hence any changes in frequency.

"We are not aware that the Nigerian government moved their beloved Hausa Service to the frequency once occupied by Radio Biafra. Hausa Fulani radio service is meant for Hausa Fulani not Biafra,” the statement said.
