Nothing as been said by the television station about the NBC suspension and fine, soon as we get a statement from them, we will bring it to you.

 

However, Nigerians have began to react on hearing the news of the fine and suspension. Here are some of their reactions as taken from twitter:

 

“@segalink – I’ve never seen an administration that is this divisive at a time when the nation needs cohesion. So it’s okay for TV stations to honor/host the threats of Miyetti Allah without consequences but their broadcast Lincence is at risk for speaking with IPOB?”

“@ayemojubar – Gumi, Secretary of Miyetti Allah Alhassan Saleh, Kabo that came to defend Pantami were granted interview on this same Channels TV, but IPOB PRO should not be given a chance to talk?
I hope Channels would get learn from this and stop promoting this unfortunate govt.”

“@DrOlufunmilayo – Miyetti Allah went to Channels TV to threaten the whole country on RUGA, the govt said nothing.
Sheikh Gumi went to Channels TV to defend bandits, the govt said nothing.
But IPOB leader goes on Channels TV, and now the station is fined and suspended.
Are we really One Nigeria?”

“@mrfestusogun – NBC suspension of Channels TV for interviewing IPOB Leader is illegal and unjustifiable. Our court in the case of NOSDRA v. EXXONMOBIL held that regulatory agencies are not empowered to arbitrarily impose sanction without recourse to the court. The attack on free press must stop.

The NBC, being a regulatory body, is not empowered by law to act as the prosecutor and the judge; all at the same time – this violates the principle of fair hearing enshrined under S 36 of the Constitution. Free press cannot thrive if these undemocratic fines are allows to stand.”
