BBC and DailyTrust TV to receive sanction by the FG for airing programmes that “glorified terrorists.”



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

Lai Mohammad, the minister of information and culture, revealed this to reporters today, Thursday, July 28.

“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 that 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 to both the BBC and the Trust Tv” Mohammed said,

The minister went on to say that sanctions would be applied on BBC despite the fact that it is a foreign medium and not subject to NBC laws.
