The National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, has handed Channels Television a suspension for alleged breach of broach code.

The suspension was conveyed in a letter to the Managing Director of Channels Television, issued by the Acting Director-General of the NBC, Prof. Armstrong Idachaba.

According to the letter, the decision was informed by the Channels 7 pm live broadcast programme of Sunday, April 25, 2021, indicting the TV station of allowing a leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) to make secessionist and inciting declarations on air without being cautioned or reprimanded by the station.

The commission said the act was in contravention of the broadcast code.

It also indicted the station for permitting the guest speaker to allegedly make derogatory and misleading statements about the Nigerian Army, despite being proscribed by a court of law.
