Nigerians have condemned the new order by the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC instructing television and radio stations to desist from revealing “details” of the activities of bandits, terrorists, and kidnappers in their reports. In its latest statement on Friday, NBC said there is a need for caution as too many details may have an adverse implication on the efforts of the security officials to solve insurgency in the country. “The Commission, therefore, enjoins broadcasters to collaborate with the government in dealing with the security challenges by; “Not giving details of either the security issues or victims of these security challenges so as not to jeopardize the efforts of the Nigerian soldiers and other security agents,” part of the statement read. Reacting, some Nigerians on Twitter accused the Buhari-led government of concealing its activities and depriving Nigerians of the right to information. They wondered how Nigerians would be aware of security update around them if details of bandits, kidnap attacks are concealed.
