[ Masterweb Reports ] - Nigeria Department of State Services (DSS) - also known as State Security Service (SSS) confirmed to Masterweb Reports the arrest and detention of Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, Director of clandestine Radio Biafra saying he was in safe hands.

In July, Nigeria National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) announced they blocked Radio Biafra signal because it was operating illegally and broadcasting hate messages. Briefing Journalists after the NBC announcement and meeting between officials of Ministry of Information and President Buhari, Dr. Shade Yemi-Esan, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Information said: “Right now the signals from radio Biafra have been jammed successfully by NBC. The commission is also working with security agencies to get those that are behind that radio because it is an illegal radio. It is not licensed by anybody to be on the airwaves in Nigeria.”
