FG To Sanction BBC And DailyTrust TV For Running Documentaries That ”Glorified Terrorists”

The Federal government says the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) and Daily Trust will be sanctioned for their documentaries that ‘glorified’ activities of terrorism and banditry in Nigeria. 

On Thursday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammad, revealed this to the newsmen.

The Minister said, “There is a regulatory body regulating broadcasting which is the Nigeria Broadcasting Commission (NBC) and they are also aware of these two incidents. 

They are looking at which part of the Broadcasting Code has been violated by the BBC and Trust TV. Media is the oxygen that terrorists and bandits use to breathe.

When otherwise reputable platforms like BBC can give their platform to terrorists showing their faces as if they are Nollywood stars, it is unfortunate. I want to assure them that they will not get away with it, appropriate sanctions will be meted out to both the BBC and the Trust Tv”.

Mohammed further stated that the fact that BBC is a foreign medium and not under NBC regulations, notwithstanding, sanctions will be meted out to the medium.
