The National Broadcasting Commission has suspended Channels Television.

NBC also slammed a N5 million fine against the news agency for allegedly breaching the broadcast code.

The suspension according to NBC is because of Channels Television’s interview with IPOB leader.

Acting Director General of the Commission, Prof. Armstrong Idachaba who referred to Channels 7pm live broadcast programme of Sunday, 25th April, 2021 in the letter addressed to its Managing Director, 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.

Idachaba alleged that the station allowed its IPOB guest to make derogatory, false and misleading statements about the Nigerian army despite being proscribed by a court of law.
