EndSARs protest coverage: Bury your heads in shame, NBC tell AIT, Channels, Arise TV


The National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, has lambasted the Channels Television, African Independent Television and Arise TV over their coverage of the EndSARS protest just as it fined the trio, N3m each.

NBC acting Director General of the Commission, Prof. Armstrong Idachaba, on Monday at a press briefing in Abuja announced the sanction.

Idachaba said the trio fell short of professionalism in their coverage of EndSARS protest alleging that they sourced their materials from social media and failed to balance their reports.

He went on to lampoon them saying, “Broadcasters, who therefore dogmatically patronise the Social Media must bury their heads in shame.”
