Uncle Ajala (@Uncle Ajala)
Channels TV was fined N5 million by NBC for violating the broadcast code by questioning an IPOB delegate.
NBC has not imposed any fines or penalties on the Miyetti Allah men, and one Nigeria is indeed a joke that isn’t funny.”

“It was not suspended when leaders of Miyetti Allah proclaimed war on farmers on this same Channels TV, but it became taboo to hear their views when those of IPOB was broadcast.
Nawa o! Are we one Nigeria?
@Oduduwar “ Interviewing MiyettI Allah terrorist group by Channels TV is a journalistic duty but talking to an IPOB leader is tantamount to aiding and encouraging secession. Buhari government is the government of the terrorist, by the terrorist and for the terrorist.”
@FestusGreen “ Channels TV offered their platform to Miyetti Allah, a terrorist organization that has was ranked “the fourth deadliest terror group in the world” by the USA. Nigeria Broadcasting Commission NBC, did nothing.Same NBC banned Channels for interviewing IPOB. Terrorist government.”
@Mr Freeman “ Injustice can never make Nigeria move forward because fulanis are controlling everything what do you think, when Sheik Gumi was interviewed with bandits they didn’t ban them.”
