THE Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, on Wednesday 1st August 2018 launched another powerful radio transmission network to the airspace.

According to Mazi George Onyibe the IPOB Africa representative and the interim IPOB  coordinator Biafra land, while unveiling the Radio transmission network on its first broadcast from Biafra land on Wednesday 1st August 2018 said that, the Radio is designed for Biafrans in Biafra land to air their views and make known to the world their ordeal and predicaments in the contraption called Nigeria since 1914, when Hausa, Yoruba and Biafra was amalgamated by Frederick Lugard of Britain for their selfish interest.

He further stated that the radio station will broadcast for three hours on daily basis from the hour of 5am to 7am Biafra time.

According to him, he said that the radio network is designed for Biafrans to ensure active participation in the struggle for Biafra restoration, especially as IPOB anticipate a referendum conduction in no distant time for Biafrans to choose either to exit Nigeria or not. On that note he said, “Audience and listeners who wish to participate in the program during live transmission can call in via the mobile phone number: +2347015491458 or call in using the radio Skype ID: Radiobiafraextra". He added that soon the WhatsApp contact will be made available to the public.

Mazi George Onyibe, further said that the official name for the radio station is RADIO BIAFRA EXTRA with the slogan THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE and the frequency remains 102.1 FM, for those who listens through FM relay stations across Biafra land and beyond and the mobile application for Biafra Radio remain intact to listen to Radio Biafra Extra transmission.  He expressed his high level of joy following the active participation and responses from Biafrans all over the world, especially those in Biafra land during the first transition of the radio. According to him "I am very much optimistic that the radio transmission will go far because, that's exactly what Biafrans called for and they have it".

He called on Biafrans to give their total support to ensure smooth and successful running of the radio transmission despite all odds.

Reacting over the development, many Biafrans expressed their feelings of joy via social media platforms and as they phone in during the transmission on Wednesday 1st August 2018. Some were of the opinion that the time slates for the transmission is too early as some Biafrans who are the targeted audience may not wake up to listen to radio broadcast then  but, Mazi Emeka Mbamaram and other concerned hardcore IPOB and principal officers in Biafra land urged Biafrans to accept it in good fate, because it was programmed as such due to the consideration of world time zones, with the aim to  serve the purpose of its  establishment.

Mazi George Onyibe added that it will not by any way interweave with the Radio Biafra London transmission anchored by Mazi Uche Mefor, the IPOB leader worldwide.
