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.”

    This explains why the feds are so damn pissed considering all the other telcos disregarded the order by ncc, also it doesn’t help that olufalae abductors used a registered sim card with no details.

    And so? Leave that man alone and find some serious issue to deal with. Look at the state of poverty eating up people, accidents happening like is second nature and they are here holding onto this matter. Nigerians and their wrong priorities !! Smh

      You are right….that’s the exact reason why the government wants to.cut him to size so that it can focus on dealing with the other “serious” issues. At the moment, the government doesn’t need any more addition to the already existing problems. Gerrit??
