The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has announced the official launch of the much anticipated IPOB sponsored Radio Nigeria Hausa Service.
The Media and Publicity secretary of the group, Emma Powerful who made the disclosure in a press statement, said the move was in keeping with IPOB promise of facilitating the creation of an unbiased informative platform to the down trodden and oppressed indigenous populations of Northern Nigeria.
The body said the maiden daily broadcast would hit the airwaves on Saturday the 6th of January 2018 at 7PM Nigerian time on Short Wave 15110 KHz 19 Meter Band.
It added that the broadcast would have the widest coverage of any radio signal in Africa and would be received all over West, East and Southern Africa.
"Every Hausa speaking community in Africa will be able to receive it. In our opinion, we feel it has become imperative to educate the poor masses of Northern Nigeria,” it said.
"The ruling class cleverly enslaved and impoverished ethnic populations of the North by keeping vital information and knowledge away from them. This information deficit is what Radio Nigeria Hausa Service has come to remedy.
"All the hitherto hidden history of the conquest of indigenous Hausa speaking populations of the North will be laid bare for the world to know. More importantly, enslaved minorities of Arewa North, brutally savaged by Fulani terrorist herdsmen, through this unbiased platform, will acquire the necessary education needed to liberate them from the suffocating stranglehold of the caliphate born to rule class.
"What we hope to demonstrate through the launch of this liberation radio station is to prove beyond every conceivable doubt that IPOB is not a selfish movement concerned only about the well-being of Biafrans, but are also genuinely concerned about the plight of all oppressed people in Nigeria.”
