The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has reportedly launched a new Hausa radio station for the oppressed people of the north, adding that it would expose all the misinformation and manipulations by northern leaders against who they described as the Indigenous Populations of Northern Nigeria (IPNN).
IPOB said that the station would start its maiden broadcast by 7pm, Saturday, on Short Wave 15110KHz 19 Meter Band.
The statement was issued by the spokesman of the Biafra secession group, Mr. Emma Powerful.
The statement by the group reads below;
“In keeping with our promise to facilitate the creation of an unbiased and informative platform to take the message of liberation to the down trodden and oppressed Indigenous Populations of Northern Nigeria, we the family members of the IPOB, worldwide and it’s indomitable leadership, wish to happily announce the official launch of the much anticipated IPOB sponsored Radio Nigeria Hausa Service. “The maiden daily broadcast will hit the airwaves on Saturday, January 6, 2018 at 7pm Nigerian time on Short Wave 15110 KHz 19 Meter Band.”
“The broadcast will have the widest coverage of any radio signal in Africa. It will 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, whom the ruling class have cleverly enslaved and impoverished… 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 themselves from the suffocating stranglehold of the caliphate or the 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 as stated by our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on countless occasions.
“Regardless of ethnicity, religion or creed, IPOB is pursuing an agenda of freedom for all. Our message is very simple, 2018 will be like no other in the history of Nigeria and will prove to be the year of liberation for those brave enough to confront the evil that Nigeria has become in the lives of millions of people.
“Our quest for the total and unadulterated liberation of Biafraland is unstoppable; this we shall demonstrate in the coming months. Those deluding themselves with the laughable and perverse notion that IPOB has been weakened because of the absence of our leader are in for a shock.
“This move today is the beginning of a mass revolution against our oppressors that will spread outside the borders of Biafra land.
“The coming of this new revolutionary Radio Nigeria Hausa Service will expose centuries old/ dark secrets through education of the oppressed Hausa Fulani youths that IPOB and Biafra mean well for them contrary to the lies being peddled by their corrupt leadership.
“We will not fail to let all Northern youths understand that their political leaders, elders and fathers like those in Biafra land are the real oppressors that have, over the years, kept them in the dark through a carefully crafted and systematic regime of misinformation and propagation of falsehood. Every Hausa speaking Northerner is advised to tune to 15110 KHz every night from 7 pm, starting from this Saturday, January 6, 2018, to be educated in order to be liberated.”
