EXCLUSIVE: NBC Shuts Down Jos Radio Station After 'Order From Presidency'

The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has shut down a Jos-based radio station, Jay 101.5 FM, based on what it described as "inciting broadcast" in a letter it sent to the station.

However, a top source who is familiar with what transpired, told SaharaReporters that the station was shut down due to "orders from the presidency because the station was broadcasting issues regarding INEC's delayed release of results of Jos North Local Government Area in the just concluded presidential elections".
