When You See Blood, Call It Lipstick, Shehu Sani Slams NBC Over Insecurity Report Gag Order

Last week, the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) ordered media houses to desist from divulging the details of assaults by bandits and terrorists.

The statement reads, “Headlines of most newspapers on daily basis are replete with security topics. While bringing information on security to the doorsteps of Nigerians is a necessity, there is a need for caution as too much detail may have adverse implications on the efforts of our security officials who are duty-bound to deal with the insurgency.”

"Some of the topics also have ethnological coating thereby, pitching one section of the country against the other and leaving in Nigerians in daily hysteria.”

Former senator, Shehu Sani, has slammed this order in a tweet today.
