Major General Chris Olukolade, Director Defence Information of the Nigerian Armed Forces..making things happen.
4 July, 2015
Woke up this morning and decided to tune into Shortwave Radio.Fortuituously, starting from where the dial of my radio set sat last time I tuned in, I heard a most pleasant call sign as follows, ‘THIS IS THE NIGERIAN ARMED FORCES RADIO’
The station were broadcasting local Nigerian martial music and also airing their identification signals and frequencies.
Unlike the new DEFENCE RADIO 107.7FM which came on stream in May 2015 and airs in Abuja and environs only, the all-new Nigerian Armed Forces Radio broadcasts on the following SHORTWAVE RADIO FREQUENCIES
11.825 KHZ (25M BAND) and
13.775KHZ (21M BAND)
What this means is that the radio station’s signals can now be received across Nigeria and around the world. It is a very good step towards challenging the useless, foreign-inspired narratives which are mostly broad on generalisation and short on specifics.

Yours truly was a first-time listener and I monitored the station’s output between 0702hrs and 0758hrs Nigerian Time this morning, Saturday 4th July 2015. My measured guess is that their broadcast time (or is it morning broadcast time?) is 0700-0800hrs Nigerian Time (GMT+1)
