The Federal High Court in Lagos has stopped the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) from revoking the licenses of fifty-three Broadcast stations in the country and shutting down the stations for allegedly failing to renew their licenses.
Justice Akintayo Aluko today granted an order to interim injunction following the hearing of an argument on motion exparte by Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SEPAP) and Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE).
SERAP and NGE had last week filed a lawsuit against President Buhari and NBC over the issue.
The suit is adjourned to eight of next month for the hearing of the motion on Notice for interlocutory injunction.
The suit followed the decision by NBC to revoke the licenses of the fifty-three broadcast stations and shut down their operations within twenty-four hours over alleged Two Point Six Billion Naira debt.
