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

The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has fined Channels Television, Arise Television and Africa Independent Television (AIT) for what it termed ‘unprofessional coverage’ of the #EndSARS protests.

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

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.

The regulators fined Arise TV, African Independent Television (AIT) and Channels Television between N2million and N3million.
