Radio Biafra goes on air in Germany this week
From: David Onwuchekwa, Nnewi
If the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) is to be believed, a new Radio Biafra, the Voice of Biafra International (VOBI), will be opened in far-away Germany this week. The radio would broadcast on short waves (SW) band, this week.
This was contained in a statement issued and signed by Biafra Director of Information, Mazi Chris Mocha.
Meanwhile the Leader of Biafra Independence Movement (BIM), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, on Sunday in Ojukwu Memories Library, New Owerri, Imo State Capital, listed some activities lined up to mark the 18 years of the founding of the movement for actualisation of sovereign state of Biafra (MASSOB).
Uwazuruike said the celebration in Onitsha, Anambra State on September 13, would be part of activities lined up for the 18 years of non-violence and non-exodus by MASSOB.
The MASSOB leader added that the Radio station would be the authentic voice of the Biafran people and would always educate, inform and enlighten our people on issues of Biafra and not to spread hate messages or blackmail.
He maintained that MASSOB-BIM would continue to play a leading role in our quest for Biafra, assuring Ndigbo that it is only through Non-Violence that could lead them to Biafra independence without firing a gunshot.
On Anambra State governorship election, on November 18, Chief Uwazuruike insisted that the election must hold as planned, adding that MASSOB was not interested in any political party.
“When there is no election the constitution is very clear on this. And what do you get in return, a military administrator will be appointed in Anambra State to the detriment of Ndigbo,” he argued.
He said the group had no regret that Radio Biafra London was set up in 2009 by Chief Ralph Uwazuruike and handed over to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu only for the same Radio to be used to blackmail its leader and spread hate massages, saying that Kanu was only out to make money and fame and not firm and credible to propagate the Biafra struggle.
