‘We’ll Meet In Court’ – DAAR Communications Replies NBC

1 Mins read

DAAR Communications Plc has replied an order by the National Broadcasting Commission asking Broadcast stations to suspend use of Twitter.

DAAR said it will challenge the order in court.

The owners and operators of Africa Independent Television, Raypower FM and Faaji Radio, made this known in a statement issued on Monday.

The management set the issue will be decided in court once the strike by the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria is over.

Although AIT, Raypower and Faaji Radio have suspended the use of their Twitter handles but believed the NBC violated their rights.

NBC, in a statement on Monday, had directed all broadcast stations across the nation to suspend their patronage of Twitter and stop using it as a source of news.

The directive also demands that they deactivate their accounts on the microblogging site.

This followed the ban of Twitter operations in Nigeria by the Federal Government over the use of the platform for ‘activities that are capable of undermining the corporate existence of Nigeria’.

NBC quoted from Sections 2 (1), 3.11.2 as well as 5.6.3 of the NBC Act.
