FG Says Radio Biafra Installed Its Transmitters On MTN Masts To Broadcast

The Federal Government on Monday revealed that the transmitters used in broadcasting messages from Radio Biafra, were installed on the masts of telecommunication company, MTN in Enugu and Anambra State.

It further stated that the installation of the transmitters on the telecommunications company’s masts was done so as messages of Radio Biafra will enjoy a wider coverage.

This was contained in the case summary of fresh six count-charges the government instituted against the Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, and two others, before the Federal High Court in Abuja.
In the case summary signed by Mohammed Diri, the Federal Director of Public Prosecutions accused one of the defendants, David Nwawuisi, who is a field maintenance engineer of being responsible for maintaining the MTN masts in Enugu State.

The other defendant, Benjamin Madubugwu, was alleged to have received a container full of transmitters from the embattled Director.

Diri also alleged that Nwawuisi installed the transmitters on MTN masts “on request by a member of Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, Chidibere Onwudiwe.”

He said, “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.”

The prosecution stated that the transmitters which were smuggled into the country by Kanu, were discovered during a search of Madubugwu’s residence, adding that they are believed to have been installed on the MTN masts between April and May 2015.

Kanu is currently standing trial for charges on treasonable felony, as a result of propaganda spread through the pirate radio station.
