The radio station, domiciled in the UK, was established by the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, with Nnamdi Kanu as director.
Kanu, also a British citizen, operated the radio on behalf of MASSOB and later turned it into a megaphone of IPOB.
The British government seems not happy with reports credited to Nigeria’s Information and Culture Minister, Lai Mohammed, who insinuated that the UK had not shut down the radio station.
A terse statement released on Thursday by the Press and Public Affairs Officer, British High Commission in Nigeria, Mr. Joe Abuku, said, “The UK is not aware of any representation from Nigerian government about Radio Biafra.
“Were we to receive any such request, we would, of course, consider it carefully on the basis of the available evidence, recognising that freedom of speech and expression carry responsibilities.’’
The minister recently accused some people in France and the United Kingdom of having links with the proscribed IPOB.
According to reports, Mohammed was quoted as saying that “the financial headquarters” of the separatist group “is in France.”
He faulted the UK for not doing something to stop Biafra Radio from airing over there.
