Ogoni Community Radio

Voice of Ogoni radio was launched on the anniversary of the hanging of Ken Saro-Wiwa and other Ogoni martyrs in November, 2009. The unlicensed station broadcast for a few months before the pressure from the Rivers state government and Nigerian military became too much for the clandestine operators and they were forced to hide the transmission equipment.

Nigeria is the only country in West Africa that continues to deny communities the right to the FM airwaves, forcing those who want or need their voices heard to resort to transmitting without a license.
