A human rights organisation know as Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, SERAP, has made it known that they are will sue the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, if NBC refuses to withdraw the unlawful query they issued to the Channels TV within 24 hours.
Speaking further, SERAP stated it clearly that Channels TV was sued for carrying out its professional duties.
SERAP made this disclosure on its twitter handle. SERAP wrote: "We're suing to end the harassment of channels tv simply for carrying out its professional duties, if the unlawful NBC query issued to the station is not withdrawn within 24 hours."
"Channels Tv is reportedly queried for interviewing the Benue State governor, Samuel Ortom."
I think this is a good and a wonderful move from SERAP. I don't really see any reason why Channels TV should be queried just because they did their job by interviewing a governor. I really wonder if we are really practising democracy in this country or military rule. May God help our dear country Nigeria.
