The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has restricted television and radio stations from revealing the “details” of activities of bandits, terrorists, and kidnappers in their reports. This order was given in a letter dated July 7, 2021, and signed by the Director, Broadcast Monitoring, Francisca Aiyetan, on behalf of the new Director-General of the Commission, Balarabe Ilelah. The letter cautioned the media houses from glamourising “the nefarious activities of insurgents” during their daily Newspaper Reviews. The letter was titled: ‘Newspaper Reviews And Current Affairs Programmes: A need for caution’. The letter reads in part: “Headlines of most Newspapers on a daily basis are replete with security topics. While bringing information on security to the doorsteps of Nigerians is a necessity, there is a need for caution as too many details may have an adverse implication on the efforts of our security officials who are duty-bound to deal with the insurgency”.
