This comes after Armstrong Idachaba, the acting Director-General of the Commission sanctioned Africa Independent Television (AIT), Arise Television, and Channels Television for violating the broadcast code over the use of unverifiable online video footages on social media.


The television stations were reportedly accused of airing unverified images of the alleged shooting on peaceful #EndSARS protesters which took place at Lekki toll gate. The NBC also fined Channels Television, AIT, and Arise TV N3m each over the coverage. Read previous report here.


Reacting to the report on Twitter, the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), condemned the sanctions and threatened to sue NBC if the fines, which they described as "illegal" are not rescinded within 48 hours.


The rights group also said the action taken by the NBC "is yet another example of Nigerian authorities’ push to silence independent media and voices"
