BREAKING: NBC fines Channels TV, Arise, AIT over #EndSARS coverage

The National Broadcasting Commission has fined Channels Television, Arise Television and Africa Independent Television for what it termed “unprofessional coverage” of the #EndSARS protests.

The acting Director-General of the NBC, Prof. Armstrong Idachaba, announced this at a press conference in Abuja on Monday.

Recall that the NBC had last week warned all television and radio stations against reporting the #EndSARS protests in a manner that could embarrass the government or private individuals or cause disaffection, incite to panic or rift in the society.

Idachaba noted that the broadcast stations were fined over their “unprofessional coverage” of the EndSARS protests and violating the broadcasting code. He added that the stations were guilty of airing unverified images of the Lekki shooting.
