The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has summoned Ahmad Isah, host of the popular Brekete Family Show, for assaulting a woman.

 

Isah, Chief Executive Officer of Human Rights Radio 101.1FM Abuja, was captured hitting an interviewee in a BBC Africa Eye documentary.

 

The woman confessed to pouring kerosene on her brother’s daughter accused of witchcraft and setting the child on fire.

 

Ekanem Antia, Deputy Director, Public Affairs, NBC, told the News Agency of Nigeria that the agency is concerned over the incident.

 

Antia said the invitation would help the commission to understand the circumstances that led to the assault.

 

“As a regulatory body for the broadcast media, the NBC cannot overlook this”, he noted.

 

“Broadcasting should guarantee fairness for all citizens and a broadcaster should grant a right of reply to every citizen before passing judgment.’’

 

Antia urged broadcasters to recognise the power they have and exercise such with great responsibility and sensitivity.

 

The spokesman appealed to broadcasters to focus on programmes that address issues bordering on peace and proffer solutions to Nigeria’s problems.
