Nigeria’s broadcast regulating agency, NBC has shut down the Ekiti State Broadcasting Service for violating Nigeria’s broadcasting code.
The Ekiti Radio and TV stations were shut down after they aired results of the Ekiti governorship election in favour of the PDP candidate. The results were announced by Ayo Fayose.
The results were said to be unapproved by the electoral body, INEC.
Similarly, the station was fined N500,000 only a few days ago for violating broadcasting rules following the alleged attempted assassination of Fayose.
