The recent activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have led panic in the South-East as they were engaged by the solidiers to calm down the pressure.Innocent lives were lost in the process.

Did Nigeria make any move to close down Radio Biafra located in London? The United Kingdom (UK) has denied getting request from the Federal Government of Nigeria to close down the radio station.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Ahaji Lai Mohammed on Wednesday said that despite all the atrocities committed by the Radio station that belongs to Nnamdi Kanu, the British government is still allowing it operations in the country.

According to Lai, "Who does not know that the IPOB internal radio is located in London? We know the diplomatic moves we have been taking and approaching the UK, all the damages it (Radio Biafra) had done, but they don't see it that way, for them (British government), it is about freedom of expression.

The British High Commission on their own part said in a statement through its Press and Public Affairs Officer, Joe Abuku that;

" The UK is not aware of any representation from the Nigeria government about Radio Biafra.

"Were we to receive any such rewuest, we would of course consider it carefully on the basis of the available evidence, recognizing that freedom of speech and expression carries responsibilities".
