According to Punch, the federal government has revealed that Radio Biafra transmitters were found to have been installed on MTN masts in Enugu and Anambra.
This revelation is said to have been made in the government’s case summary of the fresh six counts of treason and other ancillary offences instituted against the founder of Radio Biafra and leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, and two others, before the Federal High Court in Abuja.
One of the defendants in the case, David Nwawuisi, a field maintenance engineer, reportedly maintained the MTN masts in Enugu. Another of the defendants, Benjamin Madubugwu, was said to be living in Ubilisiuzo, Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State, where he allegedly received custody of a container housing transmitters from Kanu.
Federal Director of Public Prosecutions, Mohammed Diri stated, “The 3rd defendant (Nwawuisi), a Field Maintenance Engineer, charged with the responsibility of maintaining MTN masts in Enugu State, was also arrested in the course of the investigation. He agreed, on the request of an IPOB member, who is at large, Chidebere Onwudiwe, to install and did install IPOB radio transmitters on MTN masts for a consideration.”
Reports also state that the headquarters of the radio station is “presumably in London.”
