Channels TV suspended for speaking with IPOB
The National Broadcasting Commission has suspended Channels Television and also slammed the news agency the sum of N5 million fine for allegedly breaching the broadcast code.
This was contained in a letter addressed to the Managing Director of the TV station by the Acting Director General of the Commission, Prof. Armstrong Idachaba.
In the letter, Prof. Idachaba who referred to Channels 7pm live broadcast programme of Sunday, 25th April, 2021 accused the TV station of allowing a leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) to make secessionist and inciting declarations on air without caution or reprimand by the station contrary to the broadcast code.
Idachaba alleged that the station allowed its IPOB guest to make derogatory, false and misleading statements about the Nigerian army despite being proscribed by a court of law.
