FG to Sanction Channels TV | Daily report Nigeria

The Department of State Services (DSS) has denied arresting any Channels Television journalist.

Earlier on Thursday, some unconfirmed reports had it that two journalists working with Channels Television were allegedly arrested by the DSS over a recent interview on President Muhammadu Buhari.

The reports of the arrest came on the heel of a query issued to Channels TV by the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) over a recent interview he had with governor of Benue state, Samuel Ortom.

He said “The attention of the DSS has been drawn to news making the rounds in some sections of the media that its operatives earlier today (26th August, 2021) arrested two (2) journalists of Channels Television. This is false and misleading. Fake news peddlers should shun the act,”
