Biafra: Heaven Shall Bear Witness, IPOB’s Nnamdi Kanu Says As He Stages Broadcast Comeback

The leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has announced a special broadcast for Saturday, one month, one week after his last broadcast, AllNews reports.

Kanu gave the update on his known Facebook page on Thursday, much to the delight of his teeming followers.


This newspaper discovered that Kanu's last broadcast was on October 30, 2020.

Before now, the 53-year-old does broadcast via his known Facebook page twice averagely in a week.

Many believe Kanu's nonbroadcast -  which some have termed 'unusual' - is due to the current crisis rocking IPOB leadership.

Top IPOB members such as Uche Mefor and Amaka Ekwo have left the group.

Mefor, before his resignation, was the deputy leader of IPOB and a right-hand man of Nnamdi Kanu.

Mefor was said to have called for a change of approach and attitude among IPOB members.

The estranged IPOB deputy leader is rumoured to be having a feud with Nnamdi Kanu.

About Radio Biafra

Radio Biafra, also known as Voice of Biafra, is a radio station that was founded by the government of the defunct Republic of Biafra.

It is now operated by self-exiled Nnamdi Kanu.

The broadcast station is believed to have its first transmission before the Nigeria-Biafra war.

Radio Biafra was instrumental in the broadcast of speeches and propaganda by Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu to the people of the Republic of Biafra.

Now based in the United Kingdom (UK), Radio Biafra transmits via the internet and shortwave broadcast targeted to the Eastern Nigeria.

Radio Biafra claims to be broadcasting the ideology of Biafra –"Freedom of the Biafran people".

Radio Biafra has been met with mixed reactions. Some critics have criticized the station for "inciting war" through its programmes and "preaching hate messages" against Nigeria which it refers to as a “Zoo”.

On 14 July 2015, it was reported in the media that the radio station had been jammed because it did not have a broadcast licence from the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC).

However, the radio station in a swift reaction labelled such claims as "lies" and went on to release its new frequency details to the public.

AllNews reports that IPOB supporters listen to Kanu's messages via Radio Biafra App or Facebook.
