The four shortwave bands seized from Radio Biafra for FRCN include 7315khz on 41 meter band, 13840khz on 22 meter band, 17525khz on 16 meter band and 7235khz on 41 meter band.

It was further gathered that these broadcast frequencies seized from Radio Biafra, will soon be allocated for the use of Radio Nigeria stations in Bayelsa, Enugu, and Ibadan.

“The harvesting and shutting down of Radio Biafra broadcast bands were made possible after our security system penetrated IPOB foreign partners and network in October 2015 following cred- ible intelligence on the modus operandi of operators of Radio Biafra.

Having achieved that feat, the government feels the same technical backbone can be deployed for the use of a national goal.

This explains why IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu can only address his people now through Facebook,” a source in Nigeria’s security circle claims.

However top officials at the Federal Ministry of Information and another at the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) headquarters in Abuja who confirmed the recent development, disclosed that the broadcast bands were released for the use of Radio Nigeria by the NSA’s office but could not say whether they were seized from IPOB.
