The crux of the study was to find out the extent the radio was used to promote the Biafra course, find out the role played by the radio and the lessons media houses can learn from the past events. The study adopted both primary and secondary sources of literature. The study adopted the Framing and Agenda Setting Theory to explain the practice among media houses and the implications on society, especially during a conflict situation. A descriptive survey design was used as the research design. The population of the study comprises all the inhabitants of the South-South region of Nigeria. Out of the total population of the South-South region, the study adopted 994 respondents.
