NBC fines Arise News, Channels Tv and AIT N9m over #EndSARS coverage


Three major television stations have been sanctioned by the National Broadcasting Station (NBC). The Nation is reporting.



According to the Acting Director-General of the Commission, Armstrong Idachaba who made the announcement on Monday, October 26, 2020, alleged that the Africa Independent Television (AIT), Arise Television and Channels Television violated the broadcast code, top of which is the use of unverifiable online video footages on social media.

It is reported that the television stations were accused of airing unverified images of the alleged shooting which took place at Lekki toll gate and the tv stations were fined N3m each over the coverage.


Idachaba who added that DAAR Communications, owners of AIT, will be fined separately for using an unverifiable news item on the fire incident at the National Christian Centre, warned that this will be the last warning before a heavier sanction will be introduced.
