African Independent Television (AIT) is back on air barely 24 hours after the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) suspended its licence over alleged violation of the regulatory body’s rule.
A Federal High Court in Abuja had granted an order ex-parte for the maintenance of status quo, following the suspension of its operating licence by NBC.
The organisation had filed a suit challenging the suspension.
Justice Inyang Ekwo, in a ruling a moment ago, rejected two prayers by DAAR, for restraining orders against the respondents – NBC, Federal Ministry of Information and Culture (FMIC) and the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF).
DAAR Communications had, in the reliefs turned down by the court, sought to restrain the respondents from interfering with its operations pending the determination of the motion on notice for interlocutory injunctions.
