Kakaaki boycotts airing of programme in protest against NBC

A boycott of the broadcast of AIT programme, Kakaaki, has been announced following a threat from the National Broadcasting Corporation, NBC

NBC threatened few days ago to shutdown Kakaaki over claims that the programme broadcasts offensive and divisive contents.

The programme has now announced plans to boycotting airing in protest against the threat as demanded by fans of the show. According to the organizers of the show, their press freedom is being infringed upon.

They tweeted:

Today, we #BoycottBroadcast of #KakaakiSocial in solidarity with our viewers, fans and well-wishers who are protesting and demanding an END to the clamp down on #FreePress in Nigeria. An attack on FREE PRESS is an attack on the VOICE OF THE PEOPLE. #NoFreePressNoDemocracy

The news is coming few months after the founder of Daar communications, the parent company of AIT, Raymond Dokpesi, was released from detention, after he was yesterday arrested at Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja.

Raymond Dokpesi was arrested at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja, after returning from a medical trip in Dubai.

AIT, which announced the arrest, quoted an immigration officer as saying Dokpesi is on the federal government’s security watchlist and that there were instructions from above to arrest him on arrival.
