Minister of Information and Culture in Nigeria, Lai Muhammed, is under fire from Nigerians over the ban on Nigerian Info 99.3 FM.

The National Broadcasting Commission () fined the radio station over a recent comment made by former Deputy Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr. Obadiah Mailaifa.

Mailaifa had disclosed that repentant Boko Haram members had pointed to a Northern governor in the country as their commander.

Reacting to his statement on Thursday, August 13, 2020, the NBC said:

The National Broadcasting Commission has noted with grave concern, the unprofessional conduct of Nigeria Info 99.3FM, Lagos, in the handling of the Programme, “Morning Cross Fire”, aired on August 10, 2020, between 8.30am and 9.00am.

The station provided its platform for the guest, Dr. Mailafia Obadiah, to promote unverifiable and inciting views that could encourage or incite to crime and lead to public disorder.

Dr. Mailafia Obadiah’s comments on the “Southern Kaduna Crisis”, were devoid of facts and by broadcasting same to the public, Nigeria Info 99.3FM, is in violation of the following sections of the Nigeria Broadcasting Code:

3.1.1. No broadcast shall encourage or incite to crime, lead to public disorder or hate, be repugnant to public feelings or contain offensive reference to any person or organization, alive or dead or generally be disrespectful to human dignity;

3.1.2. Broadcasting shall promote human dignity, therefore, hate speech is prohibited”
