The Nigerian government on Thursday has said it will penalise the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) and Daily Trust over their documentaries on terrorism and banditry in Nigeria.
Lai Mohammad, minister of information and culture made this known in Abuja on Thursday at a press briefing.
“Let me assure you, they will not get away with this naked glorification of terrorism and banditry in Nigeria,” Mohammad said.
“When otherwise reputable platforms like BBC give their platform to terrorists, showing their faces as if they’re Nollywood stars… I want to assure them that they won’t get away with it, the appropriate sanctions will be meted.”
