Location of ‘Radio Biafra’ discovered in London

The location of ‘Radio Biafra’, a network of internet-based amateur radio stations broadcasting the agenda of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has been discovered in London, United Kingdom.

According to Cable News Network, CNN, the unlikely location of Radio Biafra is in Peckham, southeast London, United Kingdom.

“Tucked away down a quiet, leafy street in Peckham, southeast London, is the registered address of a movement seeking to break Nigeria apart.

“This suburban spot is the unlikely location for Radio Biafra, a network of internet-based amateur radio stations broadcasting a separatist agenda back to listeners in Nigeria,” CNN reports.

The Supreme Leader of IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu established Radio Biafra in 2009 to disseminate, enlighten, educate, inform and criticise the activities of the Nigerian government.

CNN reported that one Darlington Imoh, who answered the door when the broadcast station visited in August said Kanu’s supporters used the Peckham house for Radio Biafra broadcast

Imoh, who describes himself as the “officer of output for the Biafran campaign,” stated that all IPOB is calling for is the right to self-determination.

However, the International Crisis Group, an organization working to prevent war, described Radio Biafra in 2015 as “an unlicensed station urging violent struggle to achieve independence for Biafra” with broadcasts that are “highly provocative messages laced with misinformation, hate speech, and anti-Nigeria derision.”
