The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has sanctioned Arise TV two million naira for airing fake reports about Tinubu.
Recall the TV station had given broadcast to a report that the Independent National Broadcasting Commission (INEC) was investigating Tinubu’s alleged crime bothering on narcotics and illicit drugs.
INEC at the weekend denied the statement on which Arise TV based its report.
The Broadcast regulatory body, in response, sanctioned the television station with a fine of N2m for breaching the broadcasting code.
Meanwhile, Arise TV have apologised on Sunday after reporting the Independent National Broadcasting Commission (INEC) was investigating Tinubu over alleged criminal forfeiture of money on offenses bordering on narcotics and illicit drugs.
