NBC Fines AIT, Arise News & Channels TV N3m Each for ‘Embarrassing the Government’ in Their Reporting of #EndSARS Protests

Arise News, Channels Television and the African Independent Television (AIT), has been fined N3 million each by the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC), for what they termed ‘unprofessional’ reportage of the #EndSARS protests.

Professor Armstrong Idachaba, who is the Acting Director General of the NBC, disclosed this on Monday.

The NBC considers this embarrassing to the Government.

Last week, the BBC reported that the NBC had told Nigerian media outlets to desist from “embarrassing the government” in their covering of the #EndSARS protests.

Nigerians did not take that well, as many lashed out on the Commission, terming their lackadaisical comments as shameful and embarrassing.
