Assigning Channel 419 To A Nigerian Government-Owned Television Network Is Subversive – Reno Omokri Calls Out DSTV

Reno Omokri, a Nigerian lawyer and activist, has chastised Multichoice’s Digital Satellite Television for giving the 419 channel to Nigerian Television Authority, a government-owned broadcaster.

Reno alleged that NTA’s frequency channel 419 was assigned to them on purpose and not by chance. It was DSTV’s way of insulting and demonizing Nigeria, he claimed.

The famous number “419” refers to a part of the Nigerian Criminal Code that deals with fraud and the punishments for those who commit it.

In this regard, any type of financial fraud or scam in Nigeria is referred to as ‘419.’ According to Reno, DSTV’s assignment of channel 419 to NTA sends a “very powerful subliminal message.”

The following is an excerpt from his Instagram post:

Why has DSTV, a South African company operating in Nigeria, chosen to give the Nigerian Television Authority, @NTANetwork, the frequency channel of 419?

That is NOT a coincidence. It is a deliberate action. It is subversive and carries a very powerful subliminal message that demarkets Nigeria as a brand.

It is a mockery of our nation and its citizens. And if Lai Mohammed was alive to his responsibilities, @DSTVNigeria ought to be answering questions!

The Nigerian Broadcast Commission, that ought to have spotted this, are instead more focused on sanctioning radio and TV stations that criticise the Buhari administration. What a pity!”
