The Minority Caucus in the House of Representatives, the International Press Centre, Nigerian Guild of Editors and the Resource Centre for Human Rights and Civic Education have expressed concerns over the harassment of Channels Television and its presenters, Chambeelain Usho and Kayode Okikiolu by the Federal Government.

Reacting to the development, the Minority Caucus Leader in the House of Representatives, Ndudi Elumelu in a statement in Abuja, alleged that the action of the N-B-C constituted a dangerous move at stifling press freedom in Nigeria.

The Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) had issued a notice of infraction against the management of Channels Television over an interview granted by the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, on its news and current affairs programme, Sunrise Daily.
