Radio Biafra: A Stitch In Time...By Ahmad Salkida and Johnson Chinedu Edwin
Our investigations have observed that the Director has a growing influence on the minds of many who come from the other side of the Niger. The danger in this is that people in that region are beginning to accept whatever he says as the gospel truth. To the unreasoning mind, the Director is framing the thoughts of many of his listeners and predisposing them to dangerous tendencies. Without going into specifics, but to underscore what one is trying to say, the relevant authorities should know the danger of a collective mind-set propelled towards a particularly risky direction.
BY AHMAD SALKIDA AND JOHNSON CHINEDU EDWINJUN 29, 2015

In two separate newspaper articles published in 2006 and 2009 in the New Sentinel and Sunday Trust, which can be credited to one of us, Boko Haram’s total disregard for civil values was the main point of discourse. The report in question warned that the government’s disregard for the rebellious inclinations of the group would bring a calculated catastrophe to society. The authorities ignored this and did not consider the imminent peril of society.

Last week, the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) of Nigeria urged Nigerians to simply ignore Radio Biafra, a broadcast platform that has committed time, energy, and resources to peddling resentful communication about Nigeria and her constituted authorities. NBC’s management claimed that they were aware of the pirate radio station that is “transmitting seditious and divisive content contrary to the provisions of the Nigeria Broadcasting Code and law” and they are “working with security agencies to track the source of the broadcast.”

Nnamdi Kanu, who is fondly called Director, is the name behind the radio show. On a daily basis, the radio is winning many Southern, Nigerian admirers. According to a random survey conducted for the purpose of this article, an increasing number of traders, men and women in villages, schools, and commuter buses tune to the 97.6 band width. In Aba, Abia State the radio’s audience is growing steadily among young people.

A public commentator known as “Onye Nkuzi” on Twitter (@cchukudebelu), recently dissected this phenomenon, lamenting that “the Nigerian State doesn't have a narrative to challenge alienation - we've seen it in the North East and Niger Delta. It pops up again.” Radio Biafra, like the ongoing insurgency in northeast Nigeria, feeds on alienation to peddle a culture of violence through retribution of real and perceived injustice.

Meanwhile, it serves every society well to pay attention to signals and other sub-signals that have the potential to erupt into other disturbing cauldrons of widespread violence. In Asaba, Delta State, with frightful alacrity, an Igbo man brought the consciousness of radio Biafra to one of these writers one evening in the southeast and implored everyone present to tune into the station.

As soon as the right bandwidth was accessible, the voice of the ‘Director,’ Nnamdi Kanu, came through forcefully over the airwaves. To say the least, It was an arresting, almost hypnotic voice, but it was not the voice that was the problem, but the substance of what Kanu said and how he said it that called for concern.

With a warped history of the causes and effects of the 1967 Biafran Civil War, many unsuspecting listeners were spellbound as the voice of “director” resonated over the airwaves with ceaseless histrionics. With his commentaries on a wide range of subjects all geared towards the need for the burdened southern region to secede from the north and “the hypocrite southwest,” he seemed tireless.

Our investigations have observed that the Director has a growing influence on the minds of many who come from the other side of the Niger. The danger in this is that people in that region are beginning to accept whatever he says as the gospel truth.

A quick correction:

I listen to Radio Biafra, and NEVER has Nnamdi Kanu called for "Southern region to secede from the north".
His aim has ALWAYS been the restoration of BIAFRA, and by Biafra he means SS/SE and Igala and Idoma.
He hates sharing a country with Hausa/Fulani and Yoruba.
His popularity is increasing in his target zone because he speaks the truth and people recognize those truths.

From being APC's mouthpiece through propaganda, Shariareporters has achieved all they have wanted-Relevance.

How many times have they cared to listen to and broadcast several hate preachings by Muslim clerics in the North?

I've noticed this is a new trend, "if you wanna be relevant, preach against Igbos" undecided

My questions has always been straight and simple.

1.Why is blackman allergic to truth?.I cant tell.

2.Is it a crime for people to ask for freedom,when it is obvious that they are hated,allenieted from anything good,killed at will and underdeveloped?.Capital NO.

3.Has the North & Southwest cheated and impovrished the rest of us?.Capital YES.

4.Is my environment polluted,and my God given wealthy glaringly and brazenly being carted away,without any recourse to my welfare,welbeing and future?.Capital YES.

5.Was Jonathan hunted and hounded out of office?.Capital YES.

If you are Igala & Idoma,its time to join this historic emancipation.Your future matters.Your children will shame you for failing to grab this oppurtunity with two hands,when they realize that Fulani cattle rearers has over-ran,islamize,and enslave you all.

Wale=Yoruba boy.Your anger is that your people weren't listed among.Its because of your treachery and betrayal tendencies.
Igala is not Yoruba
Idoma is not Yoruba
''SS" is not Yoruba.
Why the tears?.
At the referrendum if any,we all will speak with our votes.
Or,our elders will speak at the right time.
I wonder if Igala or Idoma would love to stick to slavery than freedom.
Finally Biafra=Is not equal to 'ibo'.

Very true. Initially I felt it(radio Biafra) was a trash but later started using it as a comic relief but I can see some valid points in what the director says. After all propaganda is an invaluable instrument as learnt from the APC. If Ahmad Sakida saw nothing wrong with APC's propaganda in the days and years to the general election, he must be an hypocrite to complain now.

Radio Biafra is doing exactly what it was created to do.... create awareness to the rising of Biafa. The more other Nigerian media talks about it the more audience it will get.

God Bless my Director Nnamdi Kalu..

GOD BLESS THE REPUBLIC OF BIAFRA

it is necessary i let you know that Freedom to self determination is also a part of Nigerian Law because AFRICAN CHARTER ON HUMAN AND PEOPLES' RIGHTS which recognizes freedom to self determination is domesticated in Nigeria.

Article 20(1) says as follows:
All peoples shall have the unquestionable and inalienable right to self determination.They shall freely determine their political status and shall pursue their economic and social development according to the policy they freely chosen.

20(2) 
colonized or oppressed peoples shall have the right to free themselves from the bonds of the domination by resorting to any means recognized by the international community .
