Uncover the essential information from the post Closure Of AIT, Raypower FM Operations In Portharcourt Worrisome, Unacceptable – CSPJ in this article.
September 4, (THEWILL) – IPC’s Centre for Safety and Protection of Journalists (I-CSPJ), is very concerned by the recent closure of Africa Independent Television (AIT) and Raypower FM operations in Port Harcourt, by the Rivers State Government, and deems the action unacceptable and a violation of the rule of law.
He advised the Rivers State Government to allow AIT and Raypower FM to continue its operations and seek legal redress if it believes the media outfits have committed any offence.
The Executive Director of IPC, Mr Lanre Arogundade, said that the closure of the media outlet is another attempt to stifle press freedom in the country, warning that the state government should immediately stop actions towards that course.
The media organisation on its official page on Sunday, September 3, 2023, announced that the State Government shut down its operations through contracted telecommunications engineers, accompanied by armed security operatives.
In related development, the IPC Executive Director has also decried the reported threat on the life of veteran journalist, Ikem Okuhu, who was on Friday, August 25, 2023, accosted by two men who introduced themselves as officers of the Nigerian Police, Enugu State Command, at the burial of one of his in-laws, at Umabor, Eha Alumona, Nsukka.
