FG suspends Channels TV for interviewing IPOB

FG suspends Channels TV for interviewing IPOB




The federal government has suspended a leading media outfit in Nigeria, Channels Television.

The authorities also announced a fine of  N5 million for breach of the broadcast code.

In a letter by National Broadcasting Commission (NBC), Acting Director-General, Armstrong Idachaba, complained about the Channels 7pm live broadcast programme of Sunday, April 25, 2021.

NBC told the Managing Director of Channels TV that the TV station erred by allowing a leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to make secessionist and inciting declarations without caution.

 




The regulator accused the news channel of allowing the guest speaker to make derogatory, false and misleading statements about the Nigerian army, despite being proscribed by a court of law.
