#EndSARS: Fani Kayode slams NBC over fines imposed on Arise, AIT, Channels

Former minister of Aviation, Femi Fani Kayode has condemned the fines imposed on Channels TV, AIT and Arise TV by the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC).

It had reported that the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, on Monday accused the stations of broadcasting online photos and videos of the End SARS protests.

Acting NBC Director-General, Armstrong Idachaba, at a press conference in Abuja accused the outfits of “unprofessional coverage” of the protests.

Reacting, Kayode in a tweet via his Twitter account on Monday said sanctioning the media houses for airing footage of the Lekki massacre proves the fact that President Buhari is nothing but a dictator.

“Someone please tell NBC that Nigeria is not a police state & you cannot gag the press.

“Sanctioning & fining @AIT_Online, @channelstv & @ARISEtv for airing footage on the Lekki toll gate Massacre only proves the fact that @MBuhari is nothing but a dictator & fascist,” he said.
