Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has slammed the National Broadcasting Commission for punishing ARISE TV, Channels Television, and Africa Independent Television (AIT) over their coverage of the #EndSARS protests.
Recall that on Monday, the regulatory body fined each station N3 million for alleged violation of broadcasting codes for broadcasting footages obtained on the Lekki shooting by soldiers from unverified and unauthenticated social media sources.

Reacting to this development, Fani-Kayode stated that NBC’s move was an indicator that President Muhammadu Buhari is a “dictator and a fascist.”
It also proves that they have something to hide.
