Following a live broadcast by Channels Television last Sunday, National Broadcasting Commission, NBC has suspended the station with a fine of N5 million for breaching the broadcast code.
The NBC in a letter to Managing Director of Channels TV signed by its Acting Director-General Prof. Armstrong Idachaba, referred to Channels 7 pm live broadcast programme of Sunday, 25th April 2021.
The commission 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.
The broadcasting regulator also penalized the station for airing the derogatory statements of its guest speaker against the Nigerian Army, describing it as false and misleading, despite being proscribed by a court of law.
