The outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has announced the official launch of Radio Nigeria Hausa Service.
A statement signed by the group’s publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, says the maiden daily broadcast of the radio will hit the airwaves on Saturday, January 6th this year by 7pm Nigerian time. It will broadcast on Short Wave 15110 KHz 19 Meter Band.
Emma Powerful boasted that the broadcast will have the widest coverage of any radio signal in Africa and that it will be received all over West, East and Southern Africa. It said every Hausa speaking community in Africa will be able to receive it.
“In our opinion, we feel it has become imperative to educate the poor masses of Northern Nigeria. The ruling class cleverly enslaved and impoverished ethnic populations of the North by keeping vital information and knowledge away from them. This information deficit is what Radio Nigeria Hausa Service has come to remedy.”
The group says the radio station will help bring out the hitherto hidden history of the North
“Enslaved minorities of Arewa North, brutally savaged by Fulani terrorist herdsmen, through this unbiased platform, will acquire the necessary education needed to liberate them from the suffocating stranglehold of the Caliphate-born-to-rule class,” the statement said
The group said what it hoped to demonstrate through the launch of the “liberation radio station” is to prove beyond every conceivable doubt that IPOB is not a selfish movement concerned only about the well-being of Biafrans, but are also genuinely concerned about the plight of all oppressed people in Nigeria as stated by our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on countless occasions.
“Our quest for the total and adulterated liberation of Biafraland is unstoppable; this we shall demonstrate in the coming month. The coming of this new and revolutionary Radio Nigeria Hausa Service will expose centuries old dark secrets through education of the oppressed Hausa Fulani youths that IPOB and Biafra mean well for them contrary to the lies being peddled by their corrupt leadership. We will not fail to let all Northern youths understand that their political leaders, elders and fathers like those in Biafraland are the real oppressors that over the years have kept them in the dark through a carefully crafted and systematic regime of misinformation and propagation of falsehood.”
