National Broadcasting Commission (NBC

In a fresh report, the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has fined Channels Television, AIT and Arise TV N3m each over their “unprofessional coverage” of the EndSARS protests and the crisis that followed it.

As gathered by Mentorslinks, the NBC acting Director General Prof Armstrong Idachaba announced that sanction at a press conference in Abuja on Monday, October 26, 2020.

Meanwhile, in another story, the Government of Cross River headed by Ben Ayade had said that the state will require N5 billion to repair the Calabar International Conference Centre (CICC) vandalised by hoodlums.

The Governor, Ben Ayade made this known on Monday, while reaffirming the curfew imposed on Calabar and its environs.

If you would recall, on Friday and Saturday (October 23 & 24, 2020) – the hoodlums as confirmed by Mentorslinks.com, took advantage of the nationwide #EndSARS protests and looted items at the centre after they vandalised it.

According to the Governor, “This is not the Cross River that I was born into; It’s unlike us.”

NAN reports that Gov. Ben Ayade said that the action would have negative impact on the progress of the state’s industrialisation efforts aimed at jobs creation.

Police and other security agencies deployed to the town had started raiding the suspected criminal hideouts with a view to recover the looted items.
