Brekete Family Host Lands In Trouble As NBC Summons Him Over Assault On A Lady

The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has summoned Ahmed Isah, chief executive officer (CEO) of Human Rights Radio, over the assault of a woman.

Ekanem Antia, NBC deputy director, public affairs, said this in an interview with NAN on Thursday.

“The NBC, as a regulatory body for broadcast media, is concerned over the recent happening at the Human Rights Radio and deemed it fit to invite Isah,” he said.

Isah, popularly called ‘ordinary president’, hosts a long-running radio and television programme known as ‘Brekete Family’.

In the latest BBC Africa Eye documentary, the activist was seen slapping a lady who was accused of setting her brother’s daughter on fire.

Following the criticism that trailed the video, Isah subsequently apologised, saying his action was triggered by zeal and passion.

The deputy director said the invitation would enable the commission to know the circumstances surrounding the situation that led to the assault.

“As a regulatory body for the broadcast media, the NBC cannot overlook this,” he said.

“Broadcasting should guarantee fairness for all citizens and a broadcaster should grant a right of reply to every citizen before passing judgment.

“That is why the commission decided to send a letter of invitation to the CEO of Human Rights Radio and the anchor of the popular ‘Brekete Family’ radio programme, Ahmed Isah, to come to NBC and explain the circumstances surrounding his actions.’’

Antia asked broadcasters to recognise the power they have and exercise it with great responsibility and sensitivity.
