Banditry: Sani Discloses What NBC Wants Media Houses to Report

Former Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Shehu Sani has reacted to the National Broadcasting Commission’s directives to Newspapers and Radio/Television on its reportage of banditry in the country.

Speaking on his official Twitter page on Monday, he said that NBC expects media outlets to report that they saw a masquerade instead of bandits or groundnuts instead of bullets.

“When you see Bullets on the ground, NBC wants you to say it’s Groundnuts. When you hear Gunshots, NBC wants you to say it’s fireworks. When you see blood, they want you to say it’s lipsticks. When you see Bandits, they want you to say it’s a masquerade.”

On the 16th of July, 2021, NBC warned Newspapers against reporting on banditry, insurgency and kidnapping. It also warned against interviewing victims over what it says will jeopardise the efforts of soldiers and the fight against Boko Haram.
