DSS Speaks On Alleged Arrest Of Channels TV Presenters

The Department of State Services (DSS) has described as fake news Thursday’s reports that Channels TV presenters, Chamberlain Usoh and Kayode Okikiolu were arrested.
Reacting, the spokesperson of the agency, Dr. Peter Afunanya said according to Vanguard that no Channels TV presenters were arrested as purportedly reported by a section of the media on Thursday.
The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) – not the DSS summoned the Channels TV crew on Thursday.
Usoh and Okikiolu – hosts of Sunrise Daily on Channels Television – left the NBC office this evening (Thursday). With them was their colleague Esther Maupe Ogun-Yusuf.
Channels TV had ran into trouble with Nigerian authorities on account of their interview with Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State on Tuesday. Ortom had seriously lambasted the Federal Government, prompting the NBC to issue a query letter to Channels on Thursday.
Although Channels did conduct an interview with another government critic, Kunle Olawunmi, a former Navy Commodore, NBC did not cite that conversation in its query letter to the broadcast house.
