The United Kingdom said yesterday that it did not receive any request from the Nigerian government to shut Radio Biafra.
Lai Mohammed had said that “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) has done, but they don’t see it that way, for them (the British government), it is about freedom of expression.”
The British High Commission, in a statement by its Press & Public Affairs Officer, Joe Abuku, said “The UK is not aware of any representation from the Nigerian government about Radio Biafra.
“Were we to receive any such request, we would of course consider it carefully on the basis of the available evidence, recognising that freedom of speech and expression carries responsibilities
