FG To Block Radio Broadcasts by Boko Haram, NDA, IPOB"




International Radio Monitoring Stations (IRMS) across the country to 
counter “illegal radio broadcast” by Boko Haram, Niger Delta 
Avengers and Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The IRMS facilities are located in Azare in Bauchi State, Gusau in 

Zamfara State, Ipaja in Lagos State and Ogoja in Cross River State.


Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, in a statement issued on 

Wednesday by his media aide, Victor Oluwadamilare, said the FG was

 in the process of rehabilitating the moribund IRMS and would thereafter 

deploy them to counter any radio or internet broadcast capable 

of undermining the country’s national security.


It added that: “The IRMS are strategically located in various parts 

of the country as security surveillance to monitor radio broadcast 

activities, so as to guide against illegal use of the radio frequency 

airspace for unauthorized broadcast by proscribed groups, 

political and ethnic motivated dissidents.


“The Federal Ministry of Communications has adequately 

appropriated for rehabilitation works on the IRMS facilities 

across the country in the 2016 Federal Government budget 

and has consequently warned against any illegal occupation 

and acquisition of any fraction of land on which these infrastructures are located.”
