Nigeria ALERT: Regulatory body shuts down cable network

The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) at about 5:00 p.m. shut down the cable transmission network (CTL TV), for alleged illegal transmission.

The NBC Jos zonal director, Chris Okoyomoh, said the order was a result of the refusal of the management of the station to allow NBC engineers to test its facilities before it began transmission. The zonal director said the CTL, by that action, had violated section 9.12.10 of the national broadcasting Code, which makes it mandatory for the NBC to test, evaluate and approve equipment before a station can commence transmission.
