The National Broadcasting Commission, NBC has suspended Channels Television with a fine N5 million for breaching the broadcast code.

In a letter to the Managing Director of Channels Television signed by the Acting Director-General of the Commission, NBC, Armstrong Idachaba, the Commission referred to Channels 7pm live broadcast programme of Sunday, April 25, 2021.

According to the NBC, the TV station erred by allowing a leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB to make secessionist and inciting declarations on air without caution or reprimand.

Mr Amstrong added that such act contravenes broadcast code.

It also accused the station of allowing the guest speaker to make derogatory, false and misleading statements about the Nigerian army, despite being proscribed by a court of law.

 The programme which featured the IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful was anchored by Seun Okinbaloye.
