The NBC accused the television station of talking to the proscribed Indigenous of Biafra, IPOB.

In a statement issued by Kola Ologbondiyan, spokesman of the party, the PDP stressed that without prejudice to the issues raised against Channels Television, ‘the reported hasty clamp , without the benefit of caution, is suggestive of intolerance and high-handedness by the regulatory body.”

The statement further read: “Our party is worried that such disposition could be counter-productive and heighten the already tensed situation in our nation at this critical time.

“The PDP therefore urges the NBC to review the punitive measure on the media house as well as scale system-friendly measure that will ensure best practices in information dissemination in our country.”
