Twitter ban: DAAR Communications drags NBC to court

DAAR Communications PLC, owners and operators of Africa Independent Television, Raypower FM and Faaji Radio, has drag National Broadcasting Commission to court over its stance on the suspension of Twitter announced by the Federal Government.

The statement issued on Monday said the ban by the FG does not represent any law as contemplated by the National Broadcasting Code.

AIT, Raypower and Faaji Radio have suspended the use of their Twitter handles but said will challenge the NBC directives in court as soon as judiciary workers suspend their ongoing strike.

Recall that the NBC, in a statement on Monday, directed all broadcast stations across the nation to suspend their patronage of Twitter and stop using it as a source of news and also deactivate their accounts on the microblogging site.
