The National Broadcasting Commission has fined Africa Independent Television (AIT), Arise TV and Channels Television for covering the #EndSARS protests.

This was made known at a press conference in Abuja on Monday by the NBC Acting Director-General, Prof Armstrong Idachaba.

According to him, the affected media houses were fined N3,000,000 each for flouting the provisions of the Nigerian broadcasting code.

More so, he warned that any station that continue to air hate and inciting programmes that undermine the security of the country, will be shut down.
